ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — The University of Michigan has won a significant decision in a lawsuit challenging a campus ban on guns.

The state appeals court says the university can regulate the possession of guns. In a 2-1 opinion, the court says a 2001 ban doesn’t violate the U.S. Constitution.

The court also says the Ann Arbor school and its other campuses aren’t covered by a state law that prevents local governments from putting limits on guns.

Judge David Sawyer disagreed. He says the university is exceeding its authority by adopting its own restrictions.

All University of Michigan properties are gun-free for students, staff and the general public, unless a waiver is granted by the public safety department.

The appeals court decision was dated Tuesday but released Wednesday.

  1. OMG! Another perfect place for a deranged gunman to have a party with no worries of anyone being able to defend themselves or others. WTF! Why are these people so ignorant to the reality that they are creating a safe place for a shooter to do a mass killing? Good thing to know Michigan is like the Vatican and has its own laws and does not have to follow state laws of Michigan. How can a judge say that Michigan University and its other campuses aren’t covered by a state law that prevents local governments from putting limits on guns.Michigan needs to pull any state funding from this college as well as federal funding. Sounds like a new sanctuary city is being formed for criminals with guns. I hope the judges that made this ridiculous ruling are on campus when something horrible happens…They would just blame the gun anyway!

  2. Yeah, I’m sure the next psycho or jihadi is going to wait for his waiver to go through and be approved.

    Sorry students, you have no constitutional rights, you are sheep and need to be available for shearing.
