MI Legislature passes bill allowing concealed weapons in churches and schools

Posted: Updated:

(Lansing AP) The Michigan Legislature has enacted a bill allowing people who undergo extra training to carry concealed weapons in places such as schools and churches where they previously were off-limits.

The Republican-controlled House approved the bill Friday after it cleared the Senate on Thursday. It now goes to Gov. Rick Snyder for his signature.

Another provision would eliminate county concealed weapons licensing boards, with sheriffs taking over their duties.

Under the bill, people who concealed carry in gun-free zones would have to get enhanced training beyond basic requirements and spend additional time at the gun range. "Open carry" in those areas would be prohibited.

Decisions on licenses would have to be made within 45 days after an application is filed.
