    Exclamation Michigan Bill to remove no carry zones

    HB 4759 has been introduced by Rep. Daniel Acciavatti. Co-Sponsors are: Reps. Hoogendyk, Horn, Stahl, Opsommer, Meltzer and Meekhof

    The Bill has been referred to the Committee on Judiciary which is Chaired by a veteran anti gunner. Further, this Bill has a Minority party sponsor. Both of these facts will make this Bill a slow starter

    Your help is needed to get this moving. Call your Representative and ask them to support this HB 4759. If your Rep is a Dem, please ask them to sign on as a co-sponsor. We need bi-partisan support to move this. It is very important to make these calls or e-mails. You can find the contact info for your Representative here.. All you need is your home address if you don't know who your Rep is. Please be courteous and polite.

    The house Judiciary members are:

    Committee Members:
    Paul Condino (D), Committee Chair, 35th District
    Andy Coulouris (D), Majority Vice-Chair, 95th District
    Steve Bieda (D), 25th District
    Marc R. Corriveau (D), 20th District
    Mark S. Meadows (D), 69th District
    Andy Meisner (D), 27th District
    Bettie Cook Scott (D), 3rd District
    Virgil Smith (D), 7th District
    Rebekah Warren (D), 53rd District
    Tonya Schuitmaker (R), Minority Vice-Chair, 80th District
    David Law (R), 39th District
    Kevin Elsenheimer (R), 105th District
    John Stakoe (R), 44th District
    Rick Jones (R), 71st District
    Tory Rocca (R), 30th District


    Schuitmaker, Elsenheimer, Stakoe, Jones and Rocca are all solidly Pro Gun. Unfortunately, some of the most vocal anti gunners in the House are on this Committee.

    We need everyone's help to get this Bill moving. Your calls of support are appreciated.

    Sheldon,
    Thank you for posting this, I have been wondering when someone would raise this issue. Could you please explain how to find the contact info for my rep? I am not sure if you meant to include a link in your post...

    Thanks!

    Talking

    The citizens guide is online here http://house.michigan.gov/citizens_guide.aspthis will lead you to a lot of good information.

    I like this part of the bill...

    13 (a) Carry a pistol concealed on or about his or her person
    14 anywhere in this state.
    15 (b) Carry a pistol in a vehicle, whether concealed or not
    16 concealed, anywhere in this state.

    Hope you folks up in MI can get this passed. Sounds like a rather common sense piece of legislation, which means it'll have a hard row to hoe. Good luck and keep up the fight.

    This is excellent. We'll probably have to wait a year or two before we attempt such a bill in Kansas. We used up a lot of our juice getting the last bill through...

    When this first caught the attention over on michigan gun owners, it seems that most reps who've been contacted already support this.

    Thanks for the heads-up! I've contacted my representative and told him to support it (though I'm sure he already does).

    Sent emails to meisner, my senator and gopv granholm. Also to all of my sympathetic buddies. For them I included links to make it easy. Here are links for you guys:

    I wrote to all of them, but I guess the house is the biggie right now, until it moves on.

    Very useful links. Thank you - Let's pull together and hope the Gov. does not veto.

    Emails sent! Has anyone received a reply to their emails to their representative or senator? How long will it be until we find out the progress of this bill?
