On May 24th, the Michigan House of Representatives voted 90-19 to pass House Bill 4434 to reduce the penalty for law-abiding citizens who forget to renew their Concealed Pistol License in certain instances. HB 4434 will now go to the state Senate for further consideration, but has not yet received a committee referral. Please contact your state Senator and urge them to SUPPORT HB 4434.

House Bill 4434, sponsored by Representative Matt Hall (R-63), would reduce the offense of carrying a handgun on an expired CPL from a felony under current law to a civil fine of $330 as long as it’s within one year of expiration and the person is still legally eligible for a CPL. Permanently stripping Second Amendment rights from an otherwise law-abiding citizen who forgets to renew their CPL does not improve public safety.
