1. No such luck. They will be allowed to do so:

2. Enjoy the festival
while meandering around the area, if you see a gaggle of middle-aged guys surrounded by media cameras, that's the guys carring guns. If you want to get on television, meander toward the group. If not, then meander in some other direction.

Either way, it should be a fun time.

3. I will not be going
No thanks. They made a bad decision to allow this small group of vocal nuts to get their way.

4. Couple of problems...
"It has been a long standing legal precedent that communities can decide not to allow weapons in public places"

That is not true. The state of Michigan has a pre-emption law which means local communites cannot enact their own gun laws.

"http://tinyurl.com/2wbpye5 - google search for "man shoots self with own gun" = 29,500,000 results.

http://tinyurl.com/353ouoy - google search for "child shot in accident with parents gun" = 88,900,000 results."

The number of Google hits has nothing to do with the frequencey of either event.
