Michigan Republican Introduces Bill to Hold Businesses Liable for Gun-Free Zones - Tennessee Star: A Michigan Republican introduced a package of bills that would hold businesses and government entities with gun-free zones liable if a shooting occurs on their grounds.
State Rep. Gary Eisen (R-St. Clair Township) said House Bills 4975 and 4976 would ensure that government agencies, businesses, and private property owners can be held liable for negligence if a shooting occurs in a gun-free zone. Eisen believes that gun-free zones have “become targets for mass shootings because criminals who have no regard for the law know that law-abiding citizens are defenseless in these areas.”
He pointed to data from the Crime Prevention Research Center, which showed that 98.4 percent of mass shootings between 1950 and 2016 happened in gun-free zones.
