Ann Arbor schools could allow weapons ban

Ann Arbor — A new policy for Ann Arbor Public Schools could give the superintendent authority to enact a ban on weapons such as guns.

The school board has discussed possible new policies to prohibit visitors from carrying guns into schools and a vote is expected on Wednesday night. School board President Deb Mexicotte has said the prohibition wouldn’t apply to law enforcement officials.

A Michigan resident with a concealed pistol license may legally openly carry a gun into a school. Ann Arbor school officials began exploring a weapons-free policy, however, amid a debate about whether it’s appropriate to openly carry firearms in schools.

The action came after Joshua Wade openly carried a gun into Pioneer High School during a choir concert. He says the board has no right to ban guns.
