Michigan Supreme Court Will Not Hear Capital Area District Library’s Appeal of Gun Policy

From the Associated Press:

In a 6-1 decision, the court says it won’t hear an appeal from the Capital Area District Library in Ingham County. The library banned weapons at its branches, but the state appeals court last year struck down that policy.


A controversy began in 2010 when members of a group called Michigan Open Carry occasionally carried guns into a Capital Area library branch in downtown Lansing.
