    I pick up my grandkids at school quite often. Am I good to go carrying...? We do have Power of Attorney if that matters...

    As I understand it, you're fine so long as the gun doesn't leave the car while on school grounds.

    it doesn't matter if you are in charge of the care/custody of the child; as the law puts it, as long as you are dropping off/picking up, you are okay.

    whether the gun leaves the car may be a non-issue (depending on the situation). MI law is fairly vague in saying that you can't carry a gun IN a daycare, dorm, classroom, etc. what about just outside a daycare? what about in a college building, but not actually IN a classroom?

    you may know as well as i do that MI cops are fairly cool about decent people CCWing. every encounter i've had has been a non issue ;)

    This is the part that concerns me...

    "Schools or school property but may carry while in a vehicle on school property while dropping off or picking up if a parent or legal guardian"

    By me being the grandparent my thinking is that doesn't make me a legal guardian. Unless me haveing power of attorney changes it somehow...

    The state police word it like this

    Pistol Free Areas

    Individuals licensed to carry a concealed pistol by Michigan or another state are prohibited from carrying a concealed pistol on the following premises

    "Schools or school property but may carry while in a vehicle on school property while dropping off or picking up if a parent or legal guardian"

    While in a vehicle is the key words here I think.

    I'm not sure how to take your post, but that's what I said.
    Are you agreeing or disagreeing with me?

    And the wording I gave you was the exact wording from the Michigan State Police.

    I know about the parking lot exemption but it seems these two conflict with each other.

    IIRC the parking lot exemption came later on when they modified the law correct...? That would explain the contradictory wording...

    Right you are. The parking lot exemption came in 2003, when they updated the original law from 2001.
