LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- A Michigan lawmaker wants to lift the restrictions on where residents with the proper licenses can carry concealed weapons.
Republican state Sen. Mike Green of Mayville on Tuesday introduced legislation that would repeal so-called "no carry" zones such as sports stadiums, schools, churches, hospitals and casinos.
Some similar proposals have been introduced in recent years but haven't passed the Legislature.
Green's bills also would get rid of local gun licensing boards. The Secretary of State's office would take over permits for concealed weapons.
State law related to who can get concealed weapons permits would not change under Green's proposal.
