(AP) -Gov. Tony Evers says Republicans in the Legislature just told a majority of Wisconsin residents to "go jump in a lake" by not voting on a pair of gun control measures.

The Senate and Assembly on Thursday both essentially ignored the governor's call for a special session to take up a universal background check and "red flag" bill. Evers cited polls showing more than 80% support for the issues and said Republicans didn't have the courage to take a vote.

Evers says Republicans "did so at their own peril" because now they have to explain their action to voters. Republican Assembly Speaker Robin Vos accused Evers of playing politics and said he wasn't going to vote on bills he knew wouldn't pass.
