MI House Bill 4009: Elimination of Pistol-Free Zones

Dear Followers of my blog:

A fellow member of Michigan Open Carry, Inc. - Scott Webb - asked me to pass this information along to you.

On January 13, 2011 House Bill 4009 was introduced to the Michigan House of Representatives and then referred to the House Judiciary Committee. This bill if passed would eliminate pistol free zones as listed in MCL 28.425. This bill would greatly enhance our rights to carry in more places to protect ourselves and our loved ones. I ask that you contact the members of the Judiciary Committee and your local representatives. Inform them that as your representative you want them to support this bill and have it be signed into law.

The following is the list of members of the Judiciary Committee,

Rep. John Walsh - 517.373.3920 - Chairman - Republican - District 19
Rep. Kurt Heise - 517.373.3816 - Majority Vice Chair - Republican - District 20
Rep. Jud Gilbert - 517.373.1790 - Republican - District 81
Rep. Ken Horn - 517.373.0837 - Republican - District 94
Rep. Paul Scott - 517.373.1780 - Republican - District 51

To find your senator you can look it up at http://senate.michigan.gov/FindYourSenator/michiganfys.asp

We are asking everyone to please call or write as many representatives as you can. If you are able to we ask that you coordinate your calls or emails to take place on January 20, 2011. Through coordinating our efforts we can send a clear message that we want our right to self defense to be allowed everywhere possible. This bill would mark a huge milestone for firearm rights in Michigan. The opportunity we have been waiting for is here. It is up to us to take advantage of it.

Please forward this to everyone you know who supports the rights guaranteed by the Michigan Constitution, Article 1 Section 6, and the 2nd Amendment of the United States Constitution.
