Michigan: Legislature Reconvenes with Constitutional Carry Moving to Senate

As Michigan legislators reconvene after the summer recess, House bills 4416, 4417, 4418 and 4419 are moving to the Senate.  This package of gun bills would remove the requirement to obtain a concealed pistol license (CPL) in order to lawfully carry a firearm.  These bills would also make the current licensing system optional to allow citizens to obtain a license and take advantage of reciprocity agreements with other states.

HBs 4416, 4417, 4418 and 4419 recognize an individual’s unconditional Right to Keep and Bear Arms for self-defense in the manner he or she chooses.  Self-defense situations are difficult, if not impossible, to anticipate.  Accordingly, a law-abiding adult’s right to defend himself or herself in such situations should not be conditioned by government-mandated time delays and taxes.  Twelve states currently have laws which enable law-abiding individuals to carry a concealed firearm for self-defense without a permit.
