Michigan NO GUN zones Bill

Postby qmti » Tue Oct 08, 2019 5:29 am

State Rep. Gary Eisen, R-St. Clair Township, introduced House Bill 4975, which would revoke governmental immunity from lawsuits arising from injuries sustained on government property where guns are banned. Eisen is also the sponsor of House Bill 4976, which would make a government, business or individual that designates a property a gun-free zone responsible for the safety of individuals who enter it.

Eisen said the intention was to require a business or government that enforces a gun-free policy to take responsibility through measures like hiring security guards.

“I have to presume that no one will have a gun inside and I will be safe,” Eisen said. “They are telling me, ‘Don’t worry, Mr. Eisen, this is a gun-free zone. You’ll be perfectly safe in here.’ We know that is not the case.”

Eisen said by not allowing him to carry a gun, government and companies that declare their property a gun-free zone could be held liable under his bills.

Wasn't there a bill in Tennessee that was like this and does anyone know if it was enacted?

You asked about Tennessee, businesses can be posted, but liability is on the business owner if you get hurt as a result.

What a crock. Unless it is a government building and the person has no choice but to go there then they and they alone are solely responsible for their own actions. They knew the risks yet they choose to enter anyway.
