Should Michigan's governor sign a bill on is desk that would allow concealed weapons in former no-gun zones, like schools?
The question is timely for two reasons:
- Under legislation that passed the House and Senate in Michigan this week, gun owners with concealed weapon permits could carry a gun into schools, daycares, hospitals or public arenas if they get extra training. The bill is awaiting Gov. Rick Snyder's signature, according to MLive. Snyder told WDIV (Channel 4) that he would take a week to review the bill before making a decision.
- And on Friday, a gunman opened fire in a school in Newtown, CT, .
Grosse Pointe Public Schools Board President Judy Gafa posted this comment on a social media site, "Thoughts and prayers to the families in Connecticut who are dealing with a nightmare right now. Governor Snyder has a bill sitting on his desk waitin (sic) to be signed that will allow guns in schools. I believe the district can opt out, but this is a bad law please call and tell him to VETO the bill!"
