Decision made “in light of what’s happening in the country.”
The Michigan State Capitol Commission voted unanimously to ban the open carry of guns in the legislative building in Lansing after a mob attack on the Capitol building in the U.S. capital.
All six members of the commission, which manages the Capitol building and its grounds, supported the decision, said John Truscott, vice chairman of the commission.
“Given what’s going on around the country, we moved the meeting to consider this issue,” Truscott said in an email. – The decision has been made and will now be enforced by the Michigan State Police.”
