WI: Madison Metro Requested to Stop Violating State Law on Bearing Arms

Wisconsin Carry, Inc. Requests Madison Metro Transit Drop Unlawful CCW Ban

Today Wisconsin Carry, Inc. mailed a letter to Madison Metro Transit requesting that they change their unlawful policy of banning concealed carry on Madison buses.

A copy of this letter can be viewed here:


Wisconsin has a "preemption" statute that prohibits political subdivisions of the state from adopting or enacting ordinances pertaining to gun possession, carry, and transport that are stricter than state law.

It is our hope that Madison will save the taxpayers of Wisconsin the cost of litigation and change their policy immediately.  Members of our organization who use Madison Metro Buses are having their civil rights violated by this policy.
We encourage interested individuals to contact Madison Metro Transit and ask them to comply with state law and avoid the expense to taxpayers that will result from litigation arising from their failure to change their policy.
