    South Haven, Not sure where they are in the process...
    Anything I post may be my opinion and not the law... you are responsible to do your own verification.

    Blackstone (1753-1765) maintains that "the law holds that it is better that ten guilty persons escape than that one innocent suffer."

    St. Clair Shores.


    this is their responce
    Mr. Norgan,

    The City Attorney concurs with your assessment of our ordinance and will be recommending the necessary changes to the ordinance for council action in the near future. Also you may be interested in knowing today’s front page of the Macomb Daily has an article on this very topic. Thank you for bringing this to my attention.

    Sincerely,



    Kenneth R. Podolski

    City Manager

    St. Clair Shores

    Hi all,

    I just signed up here - great site!Does anyone know if West Bloomfield is changing their ordinance.Appears to conflict with State law - but I'm not a lawyer. Their ordinance listed in Chapter 16, Article II, Section 16-32 lists restrictions for Firearms, "within the boundaries of a community park" - see below.

    Code of Ordinances Township of West Bloomfield, Michigan

    Chapter 16 PARKS AND RECREATION

    ARTICLE II, Sec. 16-32. Firearm, bow-and-arrow and other weapons.

    It shall be unlawful for any person other than a duly sworn government law enforcement official in the course of his or her official duty to discharge, possess and/or use a firearm, bow-and-arrow, crossbow, slingshot, pellet gun or air rifle, or other weapons within the boundaries of a community park. This provision shall not prohibit the possession and/or use of any such weapon named above within the boundaries of a community park if authorized for a specified duration as part of a recreational function where the possession and/or use of such weapon or weapons is part of a function which has been expressly authorized by the township board.

    Do I just print out the LEO packet on the main page and mail it to them? If so, I'll add a few cities shortly.

    The only "no guns" sign I've seen so far is at the AT&T store in downtown Houghton.
    Haven't seen anything posted anywhere else, parks & government buildings included, except for the courts

    The Calumet Waterworks park? I was there this summer and never noticed it, if that's the one you're talking about. But then again, I usually don't look too hard for them, because they really hold no legal weight.

    RE: Kalamazoo County Parks; this is what I rec'd last...From the Park Director 9/28/09

    The proposed changes are below. The County Board of Commissioners must also approve the change and then the rules become effecitve 14 days after publication in newspaper. P. No person shall have in their possession or control any slingshot, bow and arrow, BB Gun, paint ball gun, fireworks or explosives within any parks except by prior written permission of the Commission.

    Q. No person shall discharge any rifle, shotgun, pellet gun, air rifle, pistol, or other firearm in any park for any reason, provided that this rule shall not apply to any law enforcement officer acting in the course of his or her employment. Violations or criminal offenses involving the transportation, possession, brandishing or discharge of pistols, other firearms, ammunition, or components of firearms on County park property shall be prosecuted in accordance with local ordinance or state law.

    Carry on

    I am in process to get things changed in Rochester Hills. Once accomplished, my next target will be Shelby Twp. It neighbors Rochester Hills and has a couple of unlawful firearms ordinances.
