    Michigan Open Carry was sued by Capital Area District Library for violating the library rules on carrying firearms. MOC lost in District Court, prevailed in appeals court, and again at state supreme court. CADL's argument was that they were not subject to state's preemption rules and could make their own rules on firearms. Interesting part of the entire case, many of the firearms crowd said it doesn't matter to me, I'm a hunter, or I only CC. HOWEVER, the case was on their ban on ALL firearms.

    It's a great day with even the liberal court members voting to uphold the state constitutional preemption.

    It's a sad day for the users of the library, as they have lost well over 100k in financials chasing their ridiculous claim.

    State preemption clauses apply to ALL governmental entities. Cities, Counties, Water Districts, Library Districts, etc. If they are a taxing authority, it applies. Nice to see little generals get their comuppance

    In the days of BHO... It's refreshing to see that sun still does rise in the East and that the sky is still Blue!
