Real Title: Michigan to Expand Concealed Carry & Eliminate Concealed Weapons Licensing Boards
Tuesday, December 04, 2012
As the Michigan legislature works through the final weeks of its 2011-2012 session, the state Senate approved Senate Bill 59 by a vote of 27 to 11 (vote is on page 2307). This bill was sent to the House where it has been assigned to the Committee on Natural Resources, Tourism, and Outdoor Recreation.
This pro-Second Amendment reform legislation sponsored by Senator Mike Green (R-Mayville) would streamline the process for a concealed weapons license, while creating expanded carry zones in previously prohibited places for those who are willing to undergo enhanced training. Along with many other improvements, SB 59 would, if enacted, also eliminate concealed weapons licensing boards and instead assign the role of licensing authority to county sheriffs effective May 1, 2013.
