Michigan State approves exception to weapons ban
EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Michigan State University has approved an exception to its campus weapons ban allowing people with permits to carry concealed weapons to walk or drive through campus with a gun.
The Detroit Free Press reports the East Lansing university's governing board voted 7-1 Friday to make the exception and avoid a conflict with state law. Guns still are banned inside campus buildings and sports stadiums.
The issue was raised by campus police who had to issue citations to people with guns during traffic stops regardless whether they had a permit.
