In a tremendous victory for the citizens of Michigan, the State Supreme Court ruled last Friday that the new law allowing law-abiding citizens to apply for a concealed firearms permit could not be subject to a referendum. The court ruled that a referendum cannot be held on the Right to Carry law because the legislation included a $1-million appropriation for implementation by the State Police. "We commend the Michigan Supreme Court for upholding the state Constitution which clearly forbids referenda on acts which appropriate money to state institutions," said Todd Adkins, Deputy Director of NRA-ILA’s State and Local Affairs. Michigan now joins 32 other states across the country that recognize this right through implementation of a non-discretionary permit-issuance system.
