Should Michigan's Gov. Rick Snyder sign a bill on his desk that would allow concealed weapons in former no-gun zones, like schools?
The question is timely for two reasons:
- Under legislation that passed the House and Senate in Michigan this week, gun owners with concealed weapon permits could carry a gun into schools, daycares, hospitals or public arenas if they get extra training. The bill is awaiting Gov. Rick Snyder's signature, according to MLive. However, Snyder did tell Local 4 Friday that he plans to take a week to review the bill given the recent tragedy in Connecticut.
- Friday morning a gunman opened fire in an elementary school in Newtown, CT, killing 26 people at the scene, including 20 children. The gunman has also been linked to another murder discovered in a home nearby.
