Mich. Gov. vetoes concealed carry bill

Just off the wire...Mich. Gov. vetoes concealed carry bill

http://www.marketwatch.com/story/mich-gov-vetoes-concealed-weapons-bill-2012-12-18?link=MW_home_latest_news

CHICAGO (MarketWatch) -- Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder on Tuesday vetoed a bill that would have permitted people to carry concealed weapons in public areas including hospitals, schools and daycare centers, the Wall Street Journal reports. Snyder, a Republican, bucked his own party, which had pushed the bill through the state legislature's lame-duck session last week. He told the newspaper that he was worried the bill might have forced various institutions to allow concealed weapons on site. His veto comes just days after 20-year-old Adam Lanza shot up a school in Newtown, Conn., leaving 26 people -- most of them young children -- dead before turning the gun on himself.

3. Not quite. By law, adult Mi. citizens can walk into any school carrying an unconcealed gun.

So the most worthless and overpaid legislature from hell did nothing to fix that.
