New weapons policy approved at lower Michigan public school

By  | 

KALAMAZOO, Mich. (AP) The Kalamazoo school board has approved the banning of students, staff and visitors from possessing, storing or using a weapon on district property.

With Thursday's vote, the district empowers the superintendent to turn in to law enforcement any person violating the weapons ban policy.

Michigan Court of Appeals ruled in December the law can't prevent districts from enacting their own firearms policies.

Many parents feel like Tom Wendt. He said he believes in "responsible gun ownership." He said open carrying or even carrying into a school is not responsible gun ownership.

The new policy does not apply to police officers who are on campus or pistols used in sporting events.
