Legislation to allow tasers in “no-carry” zones


Lansing lawmakers have introduced legislation that would allow certain people to carry tasers in “no-carry” zones.

Senate Bills 572 and 573 would allow Concealed Pistol License holders to carry a taser into areas that don’t allow concealed weapons; places like schools.

Republican State Senator, Mike Green said the bill would allow adults to protect themselves and younger individuals in “no-carry” zones.

“So people who work there or even there visiting have no way to defend themselves from someone that wants to create a crime against them. What we’re saying now is if you don’t want a gun there, then lets put tasers into these restricted areas,” Green said.

The bills have been referred to the Senate Judiciary Committee for consideration.
