Michigan CCW Class FAQ: Do You Know If Greenfield Village Has A Weapons Policy?

Ask The Michigan Firearms Instructor
Q: Do you know the rules regarding weapons at Greenfield Village? As always, thank you.

A: According to info on their web site, "The Henry Ford" is an independent, non-profit, educational institution not affiliated with the Ford Motor Company or the Ford Foundation.

Among their posted rules on their Internet site is a ban on the 'carrying of weapons or dangerous objects' while on the premises.

Several people have informed me that they did not see any posted signs at the entrances that bar arms. If you have a CPL, you have been indoctrinated to look for the signs.

For some reason, some businesses remember to put their "weapons policy" on their web sites but fail to post signs on the premises. I guess not only is ignorance truly bliss for the patrons but posting signs is also bad for business.

You are strongly encouraged to not only conduct your own independent research but to also consult with a competent and qualified attorney before acting upon any information in this article. Laws covering self-defense, lethal force, firearms, and the Michigan Concealed Pistol License and their enforcement are always subject to change due to laws being amended, politics conducted in the Prosecutor's Office, and election results at all levels of government. Ignorance of the law, legally speaking, is not a valid excuse for running afoul of it. The penalties and fines imposed upon violators of firearms related offenses are stiff and severe.
