I don't know the specifics of either the current or proposed Michigan laws, but I highly suspect that this article is incomplete and misleading.

While public schools may be required by the proposed law to allow CCW permit holders access, I have never seen a law in any state that would compel any church or any private school to allow concealed carry on its property.

Why should the government dictate to a church or any private organization what it may or may not allow on its own property in regard to concealed carry?

I am sure that the bill *does not* require that private organizations allow the carry of firearms on their property. The argument is a strawman put forward by those who want to ban all carry. They claim that they should not have to ban carry on their own... that the government should ban it for everyone so that they do not have to do it.

It is a very stupid argument, but it is made all the time by the anti-freedom types.
