MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - A gun rights organization has filed a lawsuit against the city of Madison, seeking to clear the way for guns on buses.
The suit, from Wisconsin Carry Incorporated, alleges that the gun ban policy on Madison Metro Transit buses violates the state's concealed carry law.
John Monroe, an attorney from Georgia who has challenged other cities firearms policies in court in the past, is representing Wisconsin Carry.
The suit seeks a declaration that state law trumps Metro’s ability to ban the carrying of guns on buses and at bus shelters.
The lawsuit claims the states 2011 concealed carry law allows license holders to carry concealed firearms in motor vehicles, thus invalidating Metro's ban.
