LANSING (WWJ) - There is a loop-hole in the Michigan concealed weapons law that makes it perfectly legal for a person to carry a weapon in a library.

In the past few weeks, Lansing Representative Joan Bauer has received a number of calls from constituents complaining about people bringing guns into the library.

“We have had some people carry guns, ultimately, in our library,” says Bauer. “(They) sit in the teen section, sit in the children’s section, and we found that out libraries are actually not included in the gun free zone.”

WWJ Lansing Bureau Chief Tim Skubick says that Bauer is currently trying to convince lawmakers to include libraries as a gun-free zone.
