The state's senators gave their votes for Wednesday's rejected, bipartisan gun control bill.
Democratic State Sen. Tammy Baldwin voted to approve the proposal, which would have required federal background checks for all transactions at gun shows and online.
Republican State Sen. Ron Johnson was among the 46 senators who voted against the bill.
Senator Johnson released a statement today, saying the proposal was fatally flawed. He also said he supports an amendment that cracks down on other items, such as making sure felons don't have access to guns.
