Michigan: Critical Pro-Gun Legislation to Receive Hearings Tomorrow

Tomorrow, the House Judiciary Committee will hear testimony on multiple pro-gun bills at 12:00 P.M. in Room 521 of the House Office Building.  Included on the agenda are Senate Bills 34, 35 and the “Air Gun Reclassification Package.”

SB 34 and SB 35 are comprehensive concealed pistol licensing reforms which 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 who satisfy all financial and submission obligations).  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.  

As previously reported, House Bills 4151, 4152, 4153, 4154, 4155 and 4156 are a set of bills which make up the “Air Gun Reclassification Package.”  This important legislative package 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package is to relieve Michiganders, and those seeking to engage in interstate commerce with Michigan residents, from outdated and unduly burdensome restraints on the transfer, purchase and possession of most air guns.

These bills are important fixes to current Michigan firearms policy.  Please contact members of the House Judiciary Committee and your state Representative TODAY and politely request that they support Senate Bills 34, 35 and the Air Gun Reclassification Package.
