Eclectablog reports that the lame duck legislature in Michigan was set to pass a bill legalizing people to carry concealed weapons in schools, churches and elsewhere. But the shooting in Connecticut brought a pause. Apparently some of the gun zealots think that if principals and teachers were armed, they could have had a firefight in the school.

Others think it would be best to keep high powered weapons out of the hands of everyone but the police and military.

UPDATE: ACCORDING TO A REPORT FROM A READER (SEE BELOW), THE LEGISLATION HAS PASSED AND IS GOING TO THE GOVERNOR FOR HIS SIGNATURE.
