Michigan lawmakers approve changes to gun permit application

Michigan lawmakers approved changes Wednesday to the state's gun permit application.

Those changes take away control from local gun boards and comes at a time when requests for concealed weapon permits are jumping as high as 60%.

Some people are now worried what these changes could mean for their communities and the state in general.

Crimes like assault, child abuse and stalking can automatically disqualify you from a concealed carry permit.

The new legislation would eliminate face-to-face interviews and the 83-county gun boards across the state.

Each gun board includes members of local law enforcement and instead turns the responsibilities over to the Michigan State Police.

In 2014, nearly 130,000 people applied for or renewed concealed carry permits.
