Children of any age could hunt with a mentor in a bill passed by the Wisconsin Assembly. The vote was 57-32 on Thursday in favor of a measure proposed by New Richmond Republican Rob Stafsholt — and it now goes to the Senate. Republicans said parents should be the ones to decide when their kids are old enough to handle guns in the woods, but Democrats said it would put innocent nearby hunters in danger. Sun Prairie Democrat Gary Hebl called it “absolute insanity” to give kids a gun at any age to experience hunting. And Stevens Point Democrat Katrina Shankland said the day will come when somebody allows a toddler to carry a gun.
