Michigan bans open carrying of weapons at the State Capitol


The Michigan State Capitol Commission voted unanimously to ban open carrying of weapons in the Lansing Legislature following a mob attack on the Capitol Building in the US capital.

All six members of the commission that governs the Capitol building and its grounds supported the decision, said commission deputy chairman John Truscott.

“Given what is happening in the country, we have rescheduled the meeting to address this issue,” Truscott said in an email. “The decision has been made and will now be enforced by the Michigan State Police.”
