According to the Detroit Free Press, a house panel approved a controversial package of bills that would allow Michigan residents to carry concealed weapons without obtaining permits or receiving training.

The four bills passed in 6-4 votes.  They now move to the full House and would require Senate approval and Gov. Rick Snyder's signature to become law.

Linda Brundage, executive director of the Michigan Coalition to Prevent Gun Violence, said if the bills become law, they will result in more people without firearms training.  Brundage also said, "we will be lobbying hard against it."
