      House approves bill to let some carry in gun-free zones

      The Michigan House has voted to let prosecutors, corrections officers and certain retired law enforcement officers carry concealed weapons in gun-free zones.

      The Michigan House has voted to let prosecutors, corrections officers and certain retired law enforcement officers carry concealed weapons in gun-free zones.

      Supporters say legislation approved Tuesday and headed to the Senate is needed because the individuals have a greater risk of being harmed by people seeking retribution.

      Under existing law, those with concealed weapons permits may openly carry guns in schools, hospitals, sports arenas and other gun-free zones. But it's illegal to carry concealed weapons in those places
