A spokeswoman for incoming House Speaker Jason Wentworth said he wants everyone to abide by the rule, even though he doesn’t believe the commission had the right to issue it.

“The speaker is grateful for the work of the Capitol Commission, but it does not have the authority to set policy in the Capitol,” Lynn Afendoulis said in a news release. ”The speaker will be looking at options for handling that moving forward. In the meantime, the Michigan State Police will be enforcing the new ruling.”

The MI commission has banned OPEN Carry only...of LGs? Handguns?

and where is the outrage about this on the MI gun owners forum?

Further where is the notices of lawsuits being filed against this travesty?

the wishy washy response from the MI legislative body tells it all...they do not care but thanks for keeping my political name in front of the public...
