Michigan Legislature Introduces Gun Owner Protection Legislation

Friday, January 18, 2013

As the Michigan state Senate finishes its second week of the new legislative session, pro-gun legislators have already begun to advocate for the rights of law-abiding gun owners.  State Senator Thomas Casperson (R-38) filed a bill that would keep the personal information of permit-to-purchase applicants confidential and exempt from Freedom of Information Act requests.  This bill, Senate Bill 49, has been scheduled for a hearing on Wednesday January 23 in the Senate Judiciary Committee at 8:30 am.

In other parts of the country, anti-gun media outlets abused their privileges under the Freedom of Information Act and have jeopardized the safety of law-abiding citizens by publishing the names and addresses of registered gun owners.  Contrary to their claims, these media elites have not increased public safety.  Rather they have simply provided a map for criminals to use on their next burglary.  SB 49 would make sure that never happens in Michigan by exempting permit-to-purchase applications from Freedom of Information Act requests. 

Please contact your state senator and the members of the Senate Judiciary Committee and urge them not to endanger the rights of people that have applied for a permit to purchase and those that have registered the pistol as required by Michigan law. It has been reported that some of the gun owners in New York who had their names and addresses published have already had their houses burglarized and their guns stolen.  Your help is needed TODAY to make sure that never happens in Michigan.
