Right to Carry

On Wednesday, Nov. 16, 2011, House Resolution #822 the "National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act of 2011" was passed.

I propose that we send emails or call Rep. Cliff Stearns, R-Fla., and Rep. Heath Shuler, D-N.C., and thank them for sponsoring this bill.

Also, and this is the hard part, this issue has not passed the Senate and we need to contact Carl Levin, and Debie Stabenow and tell them we support this issue and we would like them to support is as well.

Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act

On March 20, U.S. Senator John Thune (R-S.D.) introduced Senate Bill 2213, the "Respecting States' Rights and Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act." NRA strongly supports this act. Under this self-defense bill, an individual who has met the requirements for a carry permit, or who is otherwise allowed by state law to carry a handgun, would be authorized to carry a handgun in any other state that issues such permits or does not prohibit concealed carry, subject to the laws of the state in which it is carried.

Please contact your U.S. Senators and urge them to cosponsor S. 2213.

More information is available at NRA-ILA.

A vote is expected soon. Please call or write your state senator and ask them to vote yes on Senate Bill 59. This bill expands the definition of 'pistol free zones.'

Here is an interesting web site.

This is not an endorsement but a source of information.

This might be a good time to assemble some talking points and then contact our Reps to support the bill. Let's compare notes and build a talking points list. Thoughts?

Michigan House Judiciary Committee to Consider Repeal of Handgun Permit-to-Purchase and Registration


The Michigan House Judiciary Committee is reviewing a long-overdue bill that would eliminate the state handgun "permit-to-purchase" and registration requirements. Although a date has not been announced,House Bill 5225will be heard in the House Judiciary Committee sometime after the spring recess.


HB5225, introduced by state Rep. Paul Opsommer (R-93), would abolish the bureaucratic "permit-to-purchase" handguns which became obsolete when the National Instant Criminal Background Check System went into effect in 1998.

On March 13, 2012 U.S. Senators Mark Begich (D-Alaska) and Joe Manchin (D-West Virginia) introduced S.2188, the National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act of 2012. The bill is the Senate companion to H.R.822, which was approved by the U.S. House last November by a vote of 272-154.

S.2188, like H.R.822, would allow any person with a valid state-issued concealed firearm permit to carry a handgun in any other state that issues concealed firearm permits, or that does not prohibit the carrying of concealed firearms for lawful purposes. A state's laws governing where concealed handguns may be carried would apply within its borders.

Now for the fun part. For this to become law we need to contact our Senators, Levin and Stabenow and encourage them to support this legislation.

Recently, state Senator Tom Casperson (R-38) introduced Senate Bill 984, legislation that would allow Michigan residents to purchase long-guns, from any other state as long as they comply with current federal firearms laws. It would also allow non-residents to purchase rifles and shotguns in Michigan. At the moment, SB984 has been referred to the state Senate Committee on Outdoor Recreation and Tourism.
