Bruce Vielmetti: Gun rights group sues over weapons ban on Madison buses

We told you last month that Wisconsin Carry Inc., a gun rights advocacy group, had a problem with Madison's bus system because it banned firearms, and you knew it probably meant a lawsuit was coming.

It arrived on Wednesday, in Dane County Circuit Court, in the form of a petition for declaratory judgment.

Wisconsin Carry believes Act 35, the  law that allowed Wisconsin residents to obtain a permit to carry concealed weapons and legalized transport of  guns in vehicles,  pre-empts Metro Transit from preventing passengers from bringing guns on its buses or to bus shelters.
