Here is a suggested script that you can use when calling. You may choose to use it or use your own words.
Hi, my name is ____________, and I am your constituent. My address is ___________. Governor Evers recently introduced an Extreme Risk Protection Order bill, and I would like you to support it.
If you want to add more, you can add:
When a person is in crisis and considering harming themselves or others, family members and law enforcement are often the first people to see the warning signs. Extreme Risk Protection Orders empower loved ones or law enforcement to intervene in order to temporarily prevent someone in crisis from accessing firearms. These laws include robust due process, which protect against 2nd Amendment infringements. Other states that have passed this type of law have seen a reduction in suicides. Extreme Risk Protection Orders can also help reduce mass shootings, because shooters in these tragedies often exhibit dangerous warning signs first. I urge you to support this bill.
