“Permitless” Carry Under Consideration In Michigan

posted on May 18, 2017

Michigan is now among the long list of states where lawmakers are considering deregulating the process of carrying a concealed firearm for self-defense.

Republican Rep. Michele Hoitenga, author of the measure, believes the “permitless” carry measure will help right a wrong in the state’s firearms laws.

“It is currently legal in the state of Michigan for a law-abiding person to openly carry a firearm on their person without any training classes, fees or state bureaucracy. It only becomes illegal when a person puts on a coat, because the gun then becomes concealed,” Hoitenga said. “Our Second Amendment should not be used as a money grab for permit fees.”

A hearing on the proposal was held Tuesday in Lansing, but no firm decisions were made. Consideration of the measure continues this week.
