Title: Authorizing Judges to Carry Concealed Weapons in Courtrooms

Vote Smart's Synopsis:

Vote to pass a bill that adds state court judges, including retired judges, to the list of individuals who are exempt from the laws prohibiting concealed pistols on the premises of specific areas ("gun-free zones"), which include courtrooms, as mandated the Michigan Supreme Court (Administrative Order No. 2001-3).

Highlights:
- Authorizes the Concealed Weapon Licensing Board to require retired judges to obtain and carry a letter from the Judicial Tenure Commission stating that he or she is in good standing in order to carry a concealed weapon in a "gun-free zone" (Sec. 1). - This is a substitute bill sponsored by Rep. Jeffery Mayes.
Note:

NOTE: THIS IS A SUBSTITUTE BILL, MEANING THE LANGUAGE OF THE ORIGINAL BILL HAS BEEN REPLACED. THE DEGREE TO WHICH THE SUBSTITUTE BILL TEXT DIFFERS FROM THE PREVIOUS VERSION OF THE TEXT CAN VARY GREATLY.
