House considering bills changing gun permit process
Lansing — The state House is moving this week on approving a variety of bills changing how gun possession and use are regulated in Michigan.
The House is expected to vote Wednesday on a series of bills that would move the approval process for concealed weapons licenses from the county level to the state level, create a definition for brandishing a firearm, and allow active and retired corrections officers to carry a concealed weapon in a “weapon-free” zone.
The bills that would overhaul concealed weapons licensing are similar to two bills vetoed by Republican Gov. Rick Snyder in January.
This time, the bills don’t include a provision that would let some people who have personal protection orders against them still obtain concealed weapon licenses if the orders do not contain gun restrictions.
