Bill Would Expand Michigan Carrying Concealed Weapons Law

October 17, 2013 Criminal Law and Procedure

Michigan state lawmakers are considering several bills that would expand the ability of certain law enforcement officials to carry a concealed weapon.

Currently, Michigan law prohibits people from carrying a concealed weapon in designated areas, known as weapons-free zones. These zones include bars, college campuses, day care centers, hospitals, houses of worship, large entertainment venues, schools, and sports stadiums. This prohibition does not apply to certain law enforcement officials, such as county correction officers, judges, police officers, and sheriff’s deputies.

House Bill 4133 would add current and retired state corrections officers to the list of people who may carry a weapon in a weapons-free zone.

House Bill 4134 would add certain retired federal law enforcement officers to that list.

House Bill 4350 would add current and former prosecuting attorneys to that list.
