MADISON — Wisconsin Republicans who control the state Legislature were expected to dodge the Democratic governor's call to pass a pair of gun control bills during a special session Thursday, even as advocates planned to increase the pressure on them by holding a rally and flooding the galleries.

Republicans have said they will convene the special session in both the Senate and Assembly and then immediately adjourn without taking action on bills mandating universal background checks and allowing judges to temporarily seize guns from people who pose a threat.
