Huron Valley Schools To Tackle Open Carry Issue

Turns out anyone with proper licensing and permits can carry a gun into a public school building, and officials with Huron Valley Schools are feeling concerned.

“We had a parent who very eloquently came to the district and expressed his intent to open carry in a couple of our school buildings,” said HVS School Board Trustee Jeff Long at an Oct. 20 board dialogue meeting.

Long said he intends to research the issue and write a resolution prohibiting open carry of weapons on school properties. “While I have no objections to the rights of open carry, I don’t see a need for a parent to open carry a weapon in any of our buildings.”

Superintendent Jim Baker declined to identify the parent, but said the man, who is properly licensed, has in fact, open carried a weapon in two of the district’s buildings — those his children attend — after hours, when most students had gone home.

While there’s no state law that specifically states citizens can open carry firearms, there’s is no state law that expressly prohibits it, either, except in certain places.
