Since the Great Lakes Comic-Con takes place at a community college in the State of Michigan, we are bound by not only State law concerning weapons at school, but also the college's policy. This policy applies to vendors, as well as attendees.
Security staff will be present during all show hours of the
Great Lakes Comic-Con, and an on-duty/armed police officer
from the campus will be present during the event.
From MCC's College Rules and Regulations Page
No person, other than law enforcement personnel or a person authorized by the Director of the College Police Department or his or her designee, shall possess a weapon on property owned, leased or otherwise in the possession of the College.
As used in this policy, the term "weapon" shall mean: (1) firearms; (2) explosives or explosive devices including, but not limited to, fireworks, firecrackers or firearm ammunition; (3) knife, stabbing instrument, brass knuckles, blackjack, club, or other object specifically designed or customarily possessed for use as a weapon; or (4) an object or substance, not normally considered a weapon, that is used in a threatening or harmful manner likely to cause bodily injury or death.
