Dad Fights School Gun Ban

(WEYI) A Michigan school district is in the cross-hairs of a gun debate after a parent open-carries his pistol on campus.

That parent is allowed, according to Michigan state law, to carry his gun on school grounds, but officials say if it happens again, the school is going into lock-down.

Kenneth Herman says a new sign at Edgerton Elementary School in Vienna Township violates his right to bear arms.

"I just wanted to pick up my daughter and we wouldn't be going through any of this. All they had to do was fall in line with state law, we wouldn't be going through any of this," says Herman.

The Edgerton Elementary School parent was asked to leave campus after officials spotted him open carrying his licensed pistol.

Herman says carrying his gun is his right and a sign won't stop him.
