Should Snyder Sign Bill Allowing Concealed Weapons in Schools?

On Friday, a gunman killed at least 27 at a school in Newton, CT. Meanwhile in Michigan, Gov. Snyder has a bill on his desk that would allow some concealed guns in schools. What do you think?

The Michigan Legislature on Friday approved a bill allowing those with additional training to carry concealed weapons into venues such as schools, day care centers, churches and sports stadiums, according to WDIV-TV in Detroit.

The debate over carrying guns in schools was compounded Friday with news that a gunman killed at least 27 people, including 18 students, at an elementary school in Newtown, CT, according to Newtown Patch

Under the bill, open carry would be illegal in such venues, and those who carry concealed weapons would need extra training and time at the gun range, WDIV-TV reported.

Should Michigan's governor sign a bill on is desk that would allow concealed weapons in former no-gun zones, like schools?

Should Gov. Snyder sign this bill? Tell us in the comments.

I think its agood idea, but I would also lilke to see the law that allows you to purchase a weapon be modified so that only someone 30 and older can buy a firearm, unless you have served in the military.

No way, is he crazy? I am not in favor of that law going into effect!!

Absolutely. A legal concealed carry has been backed by a criminal background check and training. These are the people who will end up defending you when an illegal carry nutcase opens fire, not the police, they won't get there in time. Don't you people understand that it's not the people legally carrying that are causing the carnage?

Half of all mass shooters obtained their weapon legally. Number of people "saved" by people like bob? Zero. Bobs gun is far more likely to harm him, or a loved one, than "defend" any of us. We don't need you defend us, bob.
