Constitutional Carry introduced in Lansing!

It’s official!
State Representative Steve Johnson (R-HD 72) just last week introduced Great Lakes Gun Rights’ Constitutional Carry legislation for this session of the Michigan Legislature!
Introduced as a package of bills (HB 4770, 4771, 4772, 4773 and 4774), this pro-gun legislation would restore the right of law-abiding citizens in Michigan to carry a pistol to protect themselves, whether openly or concealed, without having to beg the government for permission or pay expensive fees.

Constitutional Carry filed in Lansing!

However, if you were to put on a coat which covers your pistol, you could become a felon.

High alert

The new legislation, known as “Fix-NICS,” spends more than $625 MILLION to beef up the Brady-NICS gun control database to reward states for banning people from owning guns.

The end of due process?

Like in so many cases before, the gun control lobby is shamelessly using the blood of innocents to advance their anti-gun agenda.

But this time is even scarier…

And I’ve got to tell you, I couldn’t believe what he said.
