Yup. I found something interesting. Take a look at this on page 143:No. Surprisingly, we're not wrong. It is a complicated repetitious 244-page document (as you saw), but it's not there. Looked up other references and the state is noted for not having a law or regulation requiring weapons owned by adults to be secured or safeguarded being picked up by their kids.
I saw some lady from the prosecutor's office being asked about charges for the parents. She said they were looking into it. I don't think the state officials even know what their own statutes say in their firearms laws. Or, it is such a glaring deficiency, (especially in light of current circumstance) she was just saying that to dance away from the question.
“750.235a Parent of minor guilty of misdemeanor; conditions; penalty; defense; definitions.
Sec. 235a. (1) The parent of a minor is guilty of a misdemeanor if all of the following apply:
(a) The parent has custody of the minor.
(b) The minor violates this chapter in a weapon free school zone.
(c) The parent knows that the minor would violate this chapter or the parent acts to further the violation.”
There’s no way they would be able to prove part c. So this wouldn’t stick.
