A Victory For Wisconsin Gun Owners

Wisconsin Carry president Nik Clark joined NRATV’s Grant Stinchfield Thursday to talk about the gun-advocacy group’s recent success in overturning Madison Metro Transit’s policy that banned passengers from concealed-carrying on busses. The Wisconsin state Supreme Court sided with the gun rights group, concluding that the city’s restrictions do not supersede the state's concealed-carry law signed by Gov. Scott Walker.

“You know there’s a lot of people from all walks of life who use mass transit,” Clark said. “But I think proportionately, low income folks in high crime areas who arguably might have the highest need for concealed carry, they're the ones that might rely exclusively on mass transit.”

He continued: “And yet here we are in Madison, the city that’s supposed to be liberal and compassionate, and they’re saying to their people: ‘You know what? You don’t have the right to carry. You don’t have the right to defend yourself. If your day starts and ends with a bus ride? Sorry, no right to carry for you.’”
