Governor Rick Snyder vetoes concealed weapons legislation

(WXYZ) - BREAKING: Governor Rick Snyder has vetoed gun legislation that would have allowed concealed weapons in churches, schools and daycares.

The bill drew widespread criticism in the wake of the school massacre in Newtown, Connecticut where 26 people were killed - including 20 children. Under the proposed law, concealed weapons would have been allowed in schools and churches.

Michigan's gun bill proposed allowing gun owners with extra training to carry a concealed weapon in a gun-free zone.
