Michigan: Legislation to Eliminate County Gun Boards Passes Senate and Heads to House for Consideration

Today, Senate Bills 34 and 35 passed through the Senate by an overwhelming 28-9 vote margin.  These two bills have been received by the House and assigned to the House Judiciary Committee where they are expected to be considered for a hearing on February 10.  Please call the members of the House Judiciary Committee and express your support for these crucial bills.  Also, please begin contacting your Representative and respectfully requesting their support.

SB 34 and SB 35 both seek to create a more efficient, expedient and uniform concealed pistol licensing process for all statutorily eligible Michiganders (i.e. individuals not prohibited under 28.425b and satisfy all financial and submission obligations).  As previously reported, these two bills are replicas of last session’s Senate Bills 789 and 790, which passed the legislature with bipartisan support but unfortunately fell victim to misinformation spread by out-of-state gun control organizations resulting in a veto by Governor Snyder.  The NRA has worked to ensure that these crucial reforms once again have the opportunity to pass through the Michigan Legislature.  

SB 34 and 35 are important fixes to current Michigan firearms policy.  Please contact members of the House Judiciary Committee and your state Representative and politely request that they support these important reforms to the concealed pistol licensing process.
