Michigan House passes bills eliminating need for concealed carry license

By  | 

Lansing, Mich (WILX) -- The Michigan House of Representatives has passed four bills that would eliminate the need for people carrying a concealed pistol to have a license.

The current law in Michigan gun owners must obtain a license to carry a concealed weapon.

State Rep. Andy Schor (D-Lansing) posted a statement on his Facebook page, saying the house had passed bills that would allow people to carry concealed weapons without a license.

He said he is a gun owner, but thinks that anyone who carries a concealed weapon should go through the training and background checks that are part of getting a license. He opposes the bills and voted against them in today's vote.

Schor told News 10 the House vote was 59-49 in favor of the bills. The bills now move on to the Michigan State Senate.

News 10 will continue to follow this bill as it works its way through the legislature. Stay with WILX.com and News 10 for updates.
