Michigan House Committee Approves Permitless Carry

posted on June 1, 2017

A package of bills that would make Michigan the latest state to deregulate concealed carry by doing away with required licensing by the government was approved by the Michigan House Judiciary Committee on Tuesday

The proposal, which passed by a vote of 6-4 with all Democrats voting “no,” will now be considered by the full state House of Representatives. Open carry of handguns for self-defense is already legal in Michigan, so it makes little sense for the state to regulate carry just because someone covers their firearm with an outer garment or puts it in a backpack or purse.

These bills recognize an individual’s unconditional right to keep and bear arms for self-defense in the manner he or she chooses. Twelve states currently have laws which allow law-abiding individuals to possess a concealed firearm for self-defense without a permit.
