LANSING, Mich. (WXYZ) - Dozens of men and women marched on the state capitol in Lansing to push for passage of a bill that would allow them to legally carry their guns in locations that are now banned.
Those include schools, churches, sports arenas, hospitals, day care centers and movie theaters.
Michigan Senate Bill 213 would also make changes in the county boards that approve CCW permits.
Some of the people in Lansing today were caring long guns and assault rifles that got the attention of people and drew extra security.
The group is called Michigan Open Carry and individual members visited State Representatives and Senators from their home districts with their guns strapped on.
