State Rep. Pamela Hornberger is again spearheading a plan to protect the constitutional carry rights of Michigan residents.
The plan, which Hornberger has introduced the past two legislative terms, would allow individuals who legally own a firearm to legally carry in places where either open carry or concealed pistol license holders are currently allowed. If the legislation is adopted, Michigan would join a growing list of nearly 20 states that have passed laws protecting constitutional carry.
“Our state constitution is very clear, Michigan citizens have a fundamental right to keep and bear arms,” said Hornberger, of Chesterfield Township. “This plan would repeal the requirement to obtain a license to carry a concealed firearm for individuals not otherwise prohibited from possessing a firearm.”
The plan, House Bills 4863-68 were referred to the House Military, Veterans and Homeland Security Committee for consideration.
State Rep. Pamela Hornberger on Thursday led the Michigan House in approving her plan to require state legislators to abstain from voting on any bill that could personally benefit them or their families.
