APPEARS IN Legal & Legislation

Workplace Protection and Campus Carry Introduced in Michigan!

Friday, September 11, 2009

This week a package of pro-gun bills, House Bill 5302, House Bill 5303, Senate Bill 792, and Senate Bill 793, were introduced in the Michigan Legislature. These bills would prohibit employers from firing employees who safely and lawfully store their firearms in locked vehicles. 

HB 5302, introduced by Representative Paul Opsommer (R-93), and HB 5303, introduced by Representative Joel Sheltrown (D-103), have been assigned to the House Tourism, Outdoor Recreation and Natural Resources Committee. SB 792, introduced by Senator Roger Kahn (R-32), and SB 793, introduced by Senator Jim Barcia (D-31), have been assigned to the Senate Committee on Hunting, Fishing and Outdoor Recreation. 

No hearing dates have been scheduled yet.  Please stay tuned for updates as these important pro-gun bills move through the Michigan Legislature.

Also, in an ongoing effort to broaden carry rights on college and university campuses, Senator Randy Richardville (R-17) introduced Senate Bill 747 this week. This bill would remove state colleges and universities from the "safe zone" provision of Michigan’s concealed carry law, enabling permit holders 21 years and older, to legally carry on campuses across the state.  The current arbitrary and artificial boundaries designate where permit holders can and cannot lawfully carry their gun for self-defense.  Of course, criminals do not obey the law, putting innocent citizens in jeopardy in these designated gun-free zones where criminals know right-to-carry is prohibited.  Michigan State University recently permitted concealed carry on campus, but the university still has prohibitions in classrooms, buildings and dormitories.  The bill would expand carry rights to all campus property, including buildings. 

SB747 has been assigned to the Senate Judiciary Committee, but it has not been scheduled for a hearing.  Please continue to check your email and www.nraila.org for updates.
