    Hillsdale, Mich. — The Hillsdale County Courthouse is not undergoing major renovations but some recent changes may catch your eye next time you visit.

    More specifically, you might notice the lack of signs prohibiting firearms in the courthouse.

    Circuit Court Judge Michael Smith said the decision was made about a month ago.
    “Nothing happened,” he said. “I consulted with Judge (Michael) Nye and he had no problem with it.”

    Smith said courthouses are not exempt under the concealed weapon statute and therefore there is no way to lawfully prohibit people with the proper license to carry a concealed weapon.

    “When you think about it, it’s contrary to state law,” he said. “I know the Supreme Court passed an exemption to keep them out of courthouses, but that goes against state law and last time I checked the courts aren’t the ones who can make laws.”

    Smith said there has never been a problem before and he does not foresee one in the future.

    Man is that refreshing! Those judges have got to be in the minority since it would seem most seem to hold themselves and their postion above the law. Thanks for posting!

    I may just have to forward it to my local court!

    Good to here. Wish more courts would follow their lead.

    Unfortunately this is an opinion of a pro-gun attorney on this subject:

    "That won't last long. The Supreme Court Administrative Office will come down on Judge Smith like an avenging diety, and will reiterate their insistence that he comply with and enforce the Administrative Order.

    Evil things have been happening to judges who try to buck the SCAO."

    Good deal, I can't wait for the rest of the judges to find out that they are not above the law.

    Good news, hopefully it won't get turned down by the Supreme Court.
