Federal Judge Clears Way for Open Carry Suit Against Wisconsin City

Greg Plautz from Greenfield, WI wanted to have an open carry picnic at his house, which just happens to be 50 feet from a school.  The state’s law says that you may not have a firearm within 1,000 feet from a school.  The police chief of Greenfield warned Mr. Plautz against the picnic, so he decided to sue the city.

From the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:

A federal judge has denied efforts by the city of Greenfield to be dismissed from a lawsuit over the legality of enforcing Wisconsin’s ban on firearms within 1,000 feet of a school.

A gun rights advocacy group, and several gun owners, filed the lawsuit last year. One of the plaintiffs, Greg Plautz, had tried to hold an open carry picnic at his Greenfield home in May 2009 but was warned by the chief of police that anyone wearing their gun would be subject to arrest because Pautz’s home was 50 feet from a school.
