The precedent used in Herman's lawsuit was a Michigan Court of Appeals decision which stopped a library group from banning the "open-carrying of firearms" on the library's properties. The school's District argued Herman misinterpreted the appeals court decision stating that the "ruling does not apply to school districts." Yet the court judge leaned towards Herman's argument concluding that the creation of policies regarding weapons is "beyond the legal authority of the school district."
Now, Mr. Herman can go to Clio with his pistol holstered to his waist. Herman states how he "hopes Clio school officials do not violate" the court's decision.
With gun ownership being a huge political and social topic in todays society, it is hard to recognize its constitutionality. What do you think about the court's decision. Should we, as American citizens, have the right to own a firearm? Should school districts have more legal influence on this topic?
