LANSING, MI. (WLNS) – Dozens gathered on the capitol steps Wednesday night on the third anniversary of the Sandy Hook Elementary shootings in opposition to a bill currently being considered in the Michigan Senate.
Senate bill 442 would create a way for people with concealed weapons licenses to get exemptions that would allow them to carry concealed pistols in schools, stadiums, bars, churches, hospitals and other areas currently considered off limits to weapons.
Speakers at the rally remembered the victims of the Sandy Hook shooting and urged those that where there to sign postcards that would be delivered to lawmakers in opposition to the bill.
Senate bill 442 has not seen any action in the legislature since being referred to the Senate Committee of the whole in Mid-October.
