A bill that would make getting a concealed weapon permit easier has drawn a veto by Governor Rick Snyder. He says the bill would have allowed someone subject to a personal protection order to get a gun permit. The Gongwer News Service says Snyder's veto did not come as a surprise since he had earlier rejected similar legislation. Critics of the bill said it could place victims of domestic violence in danger. The bill would also have taken the concealed weapon permit process away from local gun boards and given it to county clerks.
