New legislation has been introduced to prohibit both open and concealed carry of firearms inside the Michigan State Capitol Building, except for Michigan State Police officers and Sergeants-at-Arms.

 

The legislation comes on the heels of the Michigan Capitol Commission’s continued refusal to prohibit guns on Capitol grounds after months of meetings, powerful testimony, and gathering expert, legal opinions on the matter.

 

Firearms have long been allowed in Michigan’s State Capitol but are not allowed in the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C., and many other state Capitol buildings around the country.
