The Michigan Senate has approved a legislation that will allow a person to carry a concealed gun in public places previously off limits to weapons.

The Detroit Free Press is reporting that the Michigan Senate approved legislation Wednesday allowing the concealed carry of handguns in places that have traditionally been off limits to guns, such as schools, churches, day care centers, bars and stadiums.

The vote is on the heals of the Texas church shooting, and creates many questions concerning where a gun may be carried.

Under the legislation, concealed pistol license holders could get an endorsement on their licenses exempting them from "no gun zone" restrictions if they can show they have taken at least eight hours of additional training or are a certified firearms instructor.

Also, the licensed carrier must carry the gun openly in public.

What are your thoughts...good idea or bad?
