A judge in Michigan struck down a directive from Michigan’s secretary of state Jocelyn Benson that banned the open carry of firearms at polling places on Election Day.
A gun rights group filed a lawsuit against the directive. The judge, Christopher Murray, said that such a ban oversteps existing law and must go through the proper legislation process to go into effect. While open carry is restricted in churches and schools, which are often designated as voting locations, open carry is allowed in the rest of the state. The state’s chief of police told CNN that the directive would be difficult to enforce because there is currently now law against open carry in the state.
Michigan Court of Claims Judge Christopher Murray seems highly suspect of SOS Jocelyn Benson’s move to ban open carry guns at polling places on Election Day: It “smacks of an attempt at legislation,” he says in hearing.
