Michigan Supreme Court upholds city hunting ban

From ANIMAL PEOPLE, July/August 2007:
LANSING–The Michigan Supreme Court on June 20, 2007 ruled 4-3
that cities have the right to ban the use of firearms and archery
equipment within their limits.
“While the Department of Natural Resources enjoys exclusive
authority to regulate taking game,” the majority held, “there is no
indication that the legislative grant of authority to regulate taking
game is superior to or supersedes the authority to regulate the
discharge of weapons.”
Saginaw resident Michael Czymbor brought the case, backed by
the Michigan United Conservation Clubs.
