MADISON, Wis. (WSAU) – Madison's mayor wants to see an ordinance passed requiring written permission for a gun owner to carry a weapon on private property.
Mayor Paul Soglin says the ordinance would let property owners and renters assume that persons couldn't bring a gun onto their property without their permission. Soglin's idea comes in reaction to Senate Bill 90 which was passed last week.
If it is passed by the Wisconsin Assembly it would allow local governments to create their own laws on concealed carry in public buildings.
Soglin sent an e-mail to the Wisconsin State Journal newspaper saying he thought the U.S. Constitution favored the rights of property owners over those of gun owners.
