Chris Rickert has a good piece of what’s happening in Madison with their bus policy forbidding concealed weapons.
Last week, a judge dismissed a lawsuit challenging Madison’s ban on carrying weapons on Metro buses, largely because the ban is a “policy” — not a more formal ordinance or resolution — and thus does not run afoul of the state’s three-year-old law allowing people to carry concealed weapons.
I suppose that could mean the floodgates are now open for every anti-gun community in Wisconsin. Don’t worry about violating state law with an anti-gun ordinance; just deploy the anti-gun policy.
More likely is that Madison has been the beneficiary of some sloppily written legislation, with maybe an assist from a judge who during her campaign made it clear she was no fan of the governor who signed the concealed-carry bill into law.
