According to the Detroit Free Press, the effort in Lansing to ease restrictions on carrying concealed weapons would mark a major change in state gun laws and be the latest in a string of victories for gun rights advocates in Michigan in recent years.

Last week, the Michigan House approved a series of controversial bills that would allow lawful gun owners to carry concealed weapons without a permit or state mandated training.

Since 2001, the state has expanded access to concealed weapon permits.  The state has also passed a law allowing Michigan gun owners to stand your ground.  They have also barred local governments from passing gun ordinances.  Click on the above link for more information.
