Wisconsin Republicans on Thursday began and ended a so-called "special session" on gun laws without any debate or votes despite a call from Gov. Tony Evers to act on plans to expand background checks and adopt a "red flag" law in the state.

Evers called a special session on gun measures last month after several weeks of pushing GOP lawmakers, who control both the Assembly and state Senate, to move forward with the gun bills.
