Retired federal law enforcement officials would be able to carry concealed weapons in “no carry zones” under a bill approved Thursday by the state Senate.
The Michigan Public Radio Network’s Jake Neher reports.
“No carry zones” include places such as schools, day care centers, and sports arenas where concealed weapons are prohibited. Supporters say former federal agents face greater dangers than the general public. But many pro-gun groups oppose this and similar legislation.
