Members of the Michigan State Capitol Commission have scheduled a special meeting this afternoon to discuss the growing call for a ban on guns inside the State Capitol.

 

While acknowledging the Commission does have the legal authority to render such a decision, Vice Chair John Truscott says there are questions about funding, staffing and structural changes that would be needed within the Capitol .

 

Truscott says banning "open carry," or visible firearms in the Capitol Building is one possibility and it appears a majority of Commission members will approve a proposal to ban open carry in the Capitol.
