The Michigan House of Representatives has passed four bills that would eliminate the need for people carrying a concealed pistol to have a license.

The current law in Michigan gun owners must obtain a license to carry a concealed weapon.

Michiganders would no longer need a concealed pistol license to carry a concealed pistol under legislation approved by the Michigan House of Representatives on Wednesday.

According to WILX-TV 10, State Rep. Andy Schor (D-Lansing) posted a statement on his facebook page, saying the house had passed bills that would allow people to carry concealed weapons without a permit.

He said he is a gun owner, but thinks that anyone who carries a concealed weapon should go through the training and background checks that are part of getting a license.
