A Michigan judge has ruled in favor of a father who wanted to open carry inside of his daughter’s school — despite it being a “gun-free zone.”
According to the Detroit Free Press, Kenneth Herman sued a Clio, Michigan, school district, arguing that he was denied access to his daughter’s elementary school on multiple occasions when he tried to pick her up from the school because he was openly carrying his pistol.
“I think schools being gun free zones is not a wise idea,” Herman told WOOD-TV. “I think having law-abiding armed citizens in there provides some measure of protection that isn’t a glass door that can be broken out.”
State law allows people who have concealed carry permits to carry on school property, which ultimately led to Circuit Judge Archie Hayman’s decision on August 10. However, Tim Mullins, the school district’s attorney, argued that the law also allows school districts to develop policies for the “safety and protection of students,” according to the Free Press.
Mullins said he expects the school district will appeal Hayman’s decision as does Michigan Open Carry, the nonprofit that represented Herman.
