    Good, I hope it passes.

    Michigan Bill Would Put Gun-Free Zone On The Hook For Injuries



    A Republican state representative has introduced legislation that would hold government offices and private businesses liable if anyone is injured during a shooting in a gun-free zone on their premises.

    State Rep. Gary Eisen, R-St. Clair Township, introduced House Bill 4975, which would revoke governmental immunity from lawsuits arising from injuries sustained on government property where guns are banned. Eisen is also the sponsor of House Bill 4976, which would make a government, business or individual that designates a property a gun-free zone responsible for the safety of individuals who enter it.

    If you actively deny people the right to defend themselves, you should have to take on procedures to protect them.

    They would at least have to show some form of added security besides just posting a sign and hoping for the best.
