Michigan: Constitutional/Permitless Carry Package Introduced

Yesterday, a package of bills were introduced in the Michigan Legislature which would remove the requirement to obtain a concealed pistol license (CPL) in order to lawfully carry a firearm.   These bills would also make the current licensing system optional to allow citizens to obtain a license and take advantage of reciprocity agreements with other states.  House Bills 4416, 4417, 4418 and 4419 have all been assigned to the  House Judiciary Committee for consideration. 

These bills recognize an individual’s unconditional Right to Keep and Bear Arms for self-defense in the manner he or she chooses.  Self-defense situations are difficult, if not impossible, to anticipate.  Accordingly, a law-abiding adult’s right to defend himself or herself in such situations should not be conditioned by government-mandated time delays and taxes.  Twelve states currently have laws which allow law-abiding individuals to possess a concealed firearms for self-defense without a permit.
