Update: Of the 39 gun bills introduced during the two-year legislative term in Michigan that began in January 2017, only one—which made technical changes to records coordination between counties and law enforcement—was signed into law by Governor Rick Snyder. Thanks to everyone who took this action!
In a terrific hurry, the Michigan state Senate passed a flurry of dreadful gun bills on November 9, 2017 that would do the following:
- Allow concealed carry of loaded guns in K-12 schools.
- Allow 18, 19 and 20 year-olds to get permits to carry concealed guns in public.
- Allow foster parents to store firearms unsafely around children.
These bills could soon be headed to Governor Rick Snyder‘s desk. The good news is that Snyder has vetoed similar legislation in the past. The bad news is that it’s uncertain where he stands this time. Snyder is an NRA-endorsed governor with a solid ‘B’ rating.
Please contact Rick Synder through one of the channels below and give him the following message:
Please veto each of the three dangerous pieces of gun legislation on your desk right now—The “Guns Everywhere” bill allowing concealed carry in K-12 schools, places of worship, stadiums, daycare centers, bars; Lowering of concealed carry age from 21 to 18; Armed foster parents, etc. These bills are reckless and would lead to the unnecessarily loss of human lives in Michigan. The safety of Michigan residents should not be sacrificed for gun industry/NRA profits. Stand firm and veto this legislation once again. I will be watching your actions closely and making my decisions about voting, organizing and contributing based on them.
Michigan Governor Rick Snyder
