MADISON - Discussion of gun laws is a hot topic in many state Capitols this spring, but not in Wisconsin.
Republicans who control the state Assembly says it's highly unlikely they'll pass any legislation that would reduce access to guns. They're more focused on studying gaps in the state's mental health system that might be a factor in gun violence.
Democrats are drafting bills that would tighten background checks and restrict magazines and assault weapons, among other things. But they concede there's little hope of passage without support from the Republican majority.
MERRILL - A Northwoods school pulled off a big surprise on Friday to honor a few veterans. After months of planning, students and staff at Kate Goodrich Elementary got to see the payoff of all their hard work.
"It was like kind of overwhelming," said Wolfgang Lenk.
Lenk, Todd Annis, and Randy Perry had no idea they would be the guests of honor.
"To see all these kids and knowing how hard they worked selling all this, and now your name comes up that you're one of the three recipients, it was awesome," said Annis.
