SB 789, sponsored by state Senator Michael Green (R-31), would eliminate county concealed weapon licensing boards and transfer all of their duties to the Department of State Police and county clerks. SB 789 seeks to make the Concealed Pistol License (CPL) process more efficient and cost-effective for gun owners across the Great Lakes State. SB 789 will include the creation of a true “shall issue” CPL system for law-abiding citizens.
The Senate Judiciary Committee also heard testimony yesterday on the Firearms Record Confidentiality Package, however they decided to postpone further consideration and a vote until April 17. Please contact members of the Senate Judiciary Committee and urge them to SUPPORT the Firearms Records Confidentiality Package on April 17. Committee members’ contact information can be found here.
Senate Bills 789 and 790 are now awaiting consideration by the full Senate. Please contact your state Senator and encourage him or her to SUPPORT these bills, which make positive reforms to the CPL process in Michigan. Contact information for your state Senator can be found here.
