Lansing Mayor Virg Bernero will deliver his eighth State of the City address Monday night.
Bernero will speak at the historic Grand Trunk Western Railroad train depot, a century-old landmark that’s undergoing a major refurbishment by the Lansing Board of Water and Light. The mayor will tout the progress of the co-generation power plant that’s rising to life nearby in Lansing’s REO Town neighborhood, as well as other successes.
A Republican state lawmaker says he’ll soon make another attempt soon to relax restrictions on concealed guns in schools. That’s after Governor Rick Snyder vetoed a measure last year that would have allowed teachers, parents and visitors to carry concealed weapons in schools.
The first bill to pass a chamber of the state Legislature this year is one of several dealing with firearms. The Michigan Senate approved the legislation Thursday.
The bill would change the state’s definition of a “federally-licensed firearms dealer.”
It's a technical fix, according to supporters of the measure. They say state law isn’t in sync with federal regulations. That means some gun dealers can’t sell certain weapons because of a technicality.
A bill that would shield some guns in Michigan from federal regulations is going to the floor of the state Senate. A panel of state lawmakers Wednesday passed the bill along with other gun-related measures.
The federal government would not be able to regulate guns made and sold in Michigan, as long as they don’t cross state lines. It’s a response to recent Obama administration gun control recommendations.
Republican state Senator Phil Pavlov says the federal proposals could threaten both the Second Amendment and states’ rights.
