    Excuse me Mr. Holier than though. You have no problem with CPL holders losing the right to carry a MI pistol, so what makes you so god like to think that ******* away others abilities to carry in this bill is so right?

    My god don't get a good bill passed, just jump at the first **** they offer (yet again) and be happy.

    Look in the mirror before you complain about other people causing others to lose something.

    Do you know how nice it is to be able to carry without any ID on you and to be held to the true standard of if you can own you can carry? It's pretty nice.

    Regarding other constitution carry states, Arizona lost nothing when they went to con-carry, in fact, they even made the optional permit so the dis qualifiers mirror federal law.

    Wyoming lost nothing, neither did Alaska.

    The Gun Free School's Act is a federal law (may be gone in a few years) and state and local LEO's can not enforce or detain you for it.

    States that have a better carry permit system than MI....


    Idaho

    Pennsylvania

    Maine
    Indiana
    Georgia
    Alabama
    Mississippi
    Utah
    Arizona
    Washington
    South Dakota
    Iowa
    Wisconsin

    In other words... Michigan's license to carry and the laws are utter garbage... How many other states have people arguing over repealing a registration law that was written by the Klu Klux Klan????..... ZERO

    I just would rather not take away a protection for 7+million people, and I am fully aware that not even close to that many will use that protection. But if we remove it for one then everyone has to suffer due to that. We get so caught up in an idea that we don't stop to think about what it may cost us if we get it.

    I would be all for if:


    1. The system remained to get a CPL should someone want it.
    2. There were no restrictions on where a concealed/open gun could be taken.
    3. Little to no cost for the license should someone want it.

    And 1 or 2 other small tweaks as well. The last effort to get all the PFZ's removed failed, so I don't see unrestricted carry with no license system coming anytime soon. Lets concetrate on that first then start working on something else.

    If we think to big to fast we rush to get nothing done. One fight at a time.

    I can not understand why so many so called 2A supporters just don't get it. So many want to be Robin Hood and take from one group to give to another. Real 2A supporters would be for NOBODY losing ANYTHING they currently have.

    Yes purchase permits and registration suck, but allowing one person to get in trouble because they lost a protection, shouldn't be even considered by a true 2A supporter.

    Perhaps the bill could be amended so Permit to Purchases would be valid for 5 years and it could be reused? It could be sold as a way to bypass NICS and it could be optional. That would solve this problem.

    I don't see how any "2A supporter" could ever support registration under any circumstance. Setting aside the fact that registration was written and passed by subhuman racists pieces of garbage.

    Registration needs to go. My other post explains the gun free school act. Besides, off duty state and local cops would be in the same boat if they don't have a CPL. They aren't going to call in the feds to enforce it.

    I consider myself a 2A Supporter since I've actually done a few things (unlike most people on this forum) for the 2A in Federal Court and a few other legislative things in other states... and I want to see registration go.

    Do I understand why MOC is neutral on the bill??? Yes

    Do I blame MOC for making this decision??? No

    Do I think the decision for many people to be against this bill because of (insert a reason) just like some people were against SB 59 because gun owners are their own worst enemies????

    Yes

    Are Michigan gun owners so beat up into the ground that they have no idea how bad they have it??? Yes

    Couldn't agree more! I lived in CO where open carry is legal, there is no PTP/Registration, OC/CC of a handgun is legal in a vehicle with no permit. CC is legal while hunting W/O a permit. Shotguns/rifles can be anywhere in a vehicle not in a case, provided there is not a round in the chamber (loaded mag/clip/tube is ok), and databases of firearms, owners, and transfers (unless by a FFL) are prohibited by state law.

    Something similar to the IL FOID card? That was brought up on MGO and a crap-storm ensued.

    I say bump everything down a notch. No purchase permit or registration and the current PP (minus the registration component)system becomes the new CPL system.

    Yes...even if it were to be optional!

    I was replying to Jared's suggestion of a 5 year reusable Purchase Permit, which is essentially what the FOID card is but they've tacked a bunch of other crap onto it.

    I know. But a permit is a permission slip just the same.

    No comprende. Eliminate registration and the state level BG check for purchase and the current system for issuing PPs becomes the new system for issuing CPLs, so there would be fewer disqualifying convictions.

    And it would nicely solve the 18 USC 922 problem.

    My point would be exactly as you noted, fewer disqualifying (back door gun control) convictions.

    Did we mention OPTIONAL!?!

    You could buy a gun without it...!

    That could be problematic perhaps? If you bought a gun with it, and the next one without it, would not only one of those be protected from the GFSZ?

    You'd be protected from the Federal GFSZ as long as you had it or a CPL. It's not tied to a gun like a PP, rather it's tied to you!

    Thus "Firearm OWNER ID"

    ^^ Thats more like it.

    I was afraid of a mess like now. For example, if you get an LTP and register, you are (possibly) ok with the GFSZ. However, if you move to a different state, and buy the same make/model gun for example, and come back to visit, only the gun that was registered in MI would be covered under the (possible) GFSZ exemption. The other would not be covered, as there was nothing done that might qualify as an exemption.

    Licensing the person, as you pointed out, would qualify that person to use their rights with each of their arms.

    So basically we are at exactly where I said we would be at. Gun owners being their own worst enemy.... nothing ever improving in this state.... one of 4 states stuck with registration.

    Who needs the Brady Campaign in Michigan when we actually have gun owners who can do their job for them.
