Gun rights activists and advocates have a new victory upholding the Second Amendment to celebrate. It is a hard-fought triumph against aggressive liberals who want to impose their beliefs on everyone as they have been vigorously pushing to restrict the rights of Americans to own and carry guns for protection. They have tried practically every trick in the book to curtail said constitutional right from arrogantly shaming gun rights supporters every chance they get to mounting relentless lobby efforts to liberal legislators, state and local officials, and even the courts to stand more on the side of restrictions.
The Wisconsin Supreme Court stood its ground and cannot be swayed, however, by the pushy anti-gun rights liberals. Voting 5-2, the court just ruled that individuals in Madison have the right to carry a firearm for protection onboard city buses. The court likewise specified that local officials can not pass gun laws that are stricter than state law.
The two liberals who voted against the decision argued that the majority opinion expanded the law's intent to serve or fit its purpose. They said that the Metro Transit's policy does not translate to an ordinance or resolution.
The National Rifle Association (NRA)-ILA rejoiced over the ruling. NRA-ILA said the decision affirms the right of law-abiding passengers to carry a firearm for self-defense purposes on Madison County buses, like how they are permitted to do so in other local transit agencies. The gun rights advocate group also stressed that the city will now have to stop enforcing the illegal prohibition. They are pleased that law-abiding citizens will not have to be unnecessarily disarmed now due to the fears and impositions of liberals.
The Second Amendment has won and gun rights advocates have prevailed, a lesson that "liberal cities" cannot overstep their authorities and decide when and where private citizens can exercise their right to bear arms without facing legal challenges.
