Reads like a "defend the bureaucracy at all cost" piece of legislation. Also, research "unfunded mandate."

No criminal penalty for not complying with the law. "Adequate" is not defined. This will increase the cost of doing business in

I suppose it is a good first step in the right direction if you think holding individuals liable for infringing upon our inalienable rights is the correct path vs. working to repeal prior restraints on our inalienable rights.

...though...irony? The sovereign to hold the sovereign accountable...good luck with that. The sovereign ignores the "law of the land" now, what makes anyone think another law will change this.

Why does the government exempt itself from this proposed law?

Sec. 6b. The immunity provided by this act does not apply to 1liability of a governmental agency relating to a gun-free or 2weapon-free zone under section 40 of 1846 RS 66, MCL 554.140.

I suspect that, without gaining any success navigating MI's crappy website for RS and MCLs, court houses, cop shops, jails and juvies are exempt...I could be wrong...
