LANSING – Michigan residents could carry concealed handguns without a permit under a recently proposed package of four bills. After previously failed attempts to pass similar legislation, the lawmakers “started from scratch and proposed what we believe is the best language,” said co-sponsor Rep. Gary Glenn, R-Larkin Township. More so now than any time in recent history, people face a threat to personal and public safety, Glenn said. “The more law-abiding citizens who are armed and able to defend themselves and those around them, the better,” Glenn said. Others disagree.
