Tomorrow, the Michigan House Judiciary Committee is scheduled to consider a package of bills 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. Please contact members of the House Judiciary Committee and politely urge them to support the following self-defense bills.
House Bills 4416, 4417, 4418 and 4419 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 firearm for self-defense without a permit.
