The debate over firearms and school safety found its way Wednesday to the Michigan Supreme Court.
The court must decide whether schools can ban firearms, or if that’s preempted by state law. The court heard more than an hour of arguments from both sides.
At issue is a state law says cities, townships, villages and counties cannot adopt their own firearms ordinances. But the law is silent on school districts.
School officials say that means they can adopt policies that don’t permit firearms in schools. Gun rights groups say schools are skirting the intent of the law.
