MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin Republicans dodged the Democratic governor's call to pass a pair of gun control bills during a special session that ended as soon as it began Thursday, brushing aside advocates' demands to take action before more people die.

Gov. Tony Evers, the state attorney general, gun control advocates and Democratic lawmakers all urged Republicans to vote on the bills. But Republicans ignored them, convening the special session separately in the Senate and Assembly and adjourning within seconds without taking action.
