Michigan: House Judiciary Committee to Vote on Pro-Gun Bills Tomorrow

Wednesday, December 3, 2014

Tomorrow, the Michigan House Judiciary Committee is expected to consider and vote on Senate Bills 964, 965, 966 and 979, part of the Air Gun Reclassification Package.  Please contact members of the House Judiciary Committee TODAY in support of SB 964, SB 965, SB 966 and SB 979.

The Air Gun Reclassification Package is an overdue fix to Michigan’s firearms statute and seeks to achieve pragmatic and much-needed reform by redefining the term “firearm” in the Michigan Code to exclude devices that propel a projectile by gas, spring or air.  The goal of this package is to relieve Michiganders, and those seeking to engage in interstate commerce with Michigan residents, from outdated and unduly burdensome restraints on the transfer, purchase and possession of most air guns.

Also tomorrow, the House Judiciary Committee is expected to vote on Senate Bills 789 and 790, Comprehensive Concealed Carry Reform.  Sponsored by state Senator Mike Green (R-31), SB 789 seeks to create a more efficient, consistent and expedient concealed pistol licensing process.  As previously reported, SB 789 creates a true “shall issue” licensing system for all statutorily eligible Michiganders.

SB 789 accomplishes this goal by eliminating county concealed weapon licensing boards as well as the discretionary licensing authority currently held by those boards.  With the elimination of the county licensing boards, county clerks would administer the concealed weapon licensing process.  Background checks that are statutorily required to obtain a Concealed Pistol License (CPL) would be conducted by the Michigan State Police (MSP). However, the MSP would not retain the discretionary authority currently held by the county licensing boards since SB 789 mandates that all persons who statutorily qualify for a CPL (i.e. not prohibited under 28.425b and satisfy all financial and submission obligations) would receive a license.

Senate Bill 977 is currently awaiting a vote on the floor of the House of Representatives. Introduced by state Senator John Moolenaar (R-36), SB 977 seeks to provide active duty military personnel who are on duty orders outside of the state with the option to renew their Concealed Pistol License (CPL) through the mail.  Please contact your state Representative TODAY and encourage him or her to support and vote for SB 977.

 

Your NRA-ILA will keep you informed as these and other pro-gun bills make their way through the Michigan legislature.  Please stay tuned to your e-mail inbox and www.nraila.org for updates.
