What I would like to see changed is:
1. Get rid of purchase permits for EVERYBODY. Treat a handgun like a rifle/shotgun for purchase and ownership purposes. (would also allow residents of states like WI/IL/VT that don't issue carry permits to at least open carry in MI)
2. Get rid of the ban on carrying a loaded handgun in a car without a CPL.
Prior to having my CPL it was a real pain when picking berries with the kids to unload, put in a case, drive a few hundred feet, get out, uncase, load, and reholster. Granted, I probably could have gotten away with keeping it loaded on my person because I haven't seen a DNR officer where I pick berries in years. But, I also figured the 1 time I did that, would probably be the time a DNR truck would come around the corner....It wasn't worth risking a felony conviction.
I agree that I'd like to see the GFZ's dissapear, and allow CC without a permit, but my train of thought is that we can get around GFZ's by open carrying (w/CC permit), but we should be able to transport a handgun for self defense in a vehicle without being required to pay the state, and I have friends from WI that can not bring their handguns with them for any reason when they come up because WI doesn't issue a CC permit.
Personally, I'd like to see the law say something like: Any person not prohibited by law from possessing a firearm may purchase, possess, carry, and transport such firearm in any such manner, provided there is no intention to use such firearm in a manner that would injur fellow man or deface any property other than that owned by the possesor or other property with the consent of the owner of such property.
