Lawyer wants ban on weapons lifted for building

Posted: Updated:

A lawyer is challenging a ban on weapons at an administration building for Genesee County in Flint.

The Flint Journal reports the Board of Commissioners is considering lifting the ban on weapons inside county offices downtown or at least making changes that will give gun owners more freedom of movement if they are carrying a gun.

Lawyer K.C. Baran asked the county to remove signs posted at the main entrance. He says the ban interferes with citizens' rights to carry guns.

County board Chairman Jamie Curtis says the signs that say "No weapons beyond this point" have been in place for several years.

Michigan law prohibits guns in some places, but there's no statute to keep weapons from being brought into sites such as the county's administration building.
