Michigan Public Schools Have Power To Ban Guns

Michigan’s public schools officially have the power to ban guns.

The Michigan appeals court had the case tied to bans in Ann Arbor and Clio.

The court says schools have been "broadly empowered" by the Legislature to keep students safe.

Each district was challenged by parents with a concealed pistol license.

Critics argued schools can’t restrict guns because state law prohibits local governments from regulating gun possession.

The court says schools are "not formed, organized or operated" by cities, townships or counties and have "very broad powers of self-governance."
