Today, the Lansing Capitol Committee could impose a gun ban inside of the state's capitol building.
Currently, firearms are allowed inside the building. This issue was put into sharp focus on April 30, when armed protestors entered the Capitol while the Michigan Legislature was in session.
State Attorney General Dana Nessel says the commission has the authority to ban firearms inside the state capitol.
In a letter to the commissioners, Nessel says this is for everyone's safety.
Originally, the commission believed only the legislature had the power to act.
The meeting takes place at 11 this morning. The public is welcome to watch via Zoom at this link.
