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.
