New legislation would allow concealed carry without a permit in Michigan

Legislation recently introduced by four House Republicans in Michigan would allow law-abiding citizens to carry concealed weapons without a government-issued permit.

The bills’ sponsors indicate penalties for unlawful possession of a firearm will remain in effect, and people who are currently not legally allowed to carry firearms will not be allowed to carry a concealed weapon legally either.

Supporters say requiring a special permit forces inefficient spending, and is an inconvenience to gun owners.
