Mich. Gov. To Review Concealed Weapons Bill In Wake Of Mass Shooting In Connecticut

LANSING ( AP) – A spokeswoman for Gov. Rick Snyder says a bill that would allow people to carry concealed weapons in schools and churches in Michigan will be carefully reviewed in the wake of Friday’s tragedy in Connecticut, before he decides whether to make it law.

The House gave final approval Friday to legislation that says someone who gets extra training could be allowed to have a concealed weapon in currently “gun-free” zones.

Spokeswoman Sara Wurfel says the Governor believes mass shootings like the one Friday morning in a Connecticut elementary school “must and should give pause.”
