In Republican-controlled states, a growing number of state legislatures are passing more Second Amendment or gun-friendly laws. The Michigan House recently passed several bills that Democrats and the liberal media label as controversial. One of those laws is allow permitless concealed carry without state mandated training.
The effort in Lansing to ease restrictions on carrying concealed weapons would mark a major change in state gun laws and be the latest in a string of victories for gun-rights advocates in Michigan in recent years.
Last week, the Michigan House approved a series of controversial bills that would allow lawful gun owners to carry concealed weapons without a permit or state-mandated training.
Since 2001, the state has:
- Expanded access to concealed weapon permits
- Passed a law allowing Michigan gun owners to “stand your ground”
- Streamlined pistol purchases by allowing gun dealers to use instant computer background checks
- Eliminated county gun boards, which had decided who received a carry permit
- Barred local governments from passing gun ordinances …
If Republicans in the federal Congress would get their act together, they should take the opportunity to pass more Second Amendment and gun-friendly laws. Imagine how great it would be to see a national constitutional carry law, making it legal to carry a concealed weapon without a permit in every state and every city.
