    I got a reply from Sen. Jones. Basically, like a true politician, he answered without answering. He reiterated the fact that he supported the bill when the Senate voted on it, but skipped over answering when I directly asked if be would author or support a measure to over ride the Governors decision.

    Now, with all the wild and rampant speculation over the possibility of a future gun-ban, we should be pressuring our state and federal leaders even more about where we stand on the Right to Keep and Bear Arms.

    No, the title is old. House passed the bill, Senate passed the bill, Governor vetoed the bill, we're now waiting to see if the senate super majority over rides the veto. We should find something today.

    Good luck guys. If you contact your reps remind them that the current system doesn't work. Look at Detroit.

    Hope you guys win
    I have had a MI CPL (CCW) since they came out & then some.
    It allows me to just walk in to a gun shop & purchase ( with FBI check) a handgun & be on my way in about 15 minutes----I do have to mail the paper work to my local Police station

    I'm taking my CPL class next weekend. But even with the CPL, don't you need to send all the infor to register the pistol to the MSP?

    Your gun shop sends to MSP
    You only have to send a copy ( gun shop gives you) to your local Police station---you can hand deliver if you got nothing to do----:D

    Thanks Howard, that's what I needed to know.


    Any word on how HB 5225 went? Haven't read any updates.

    I have heard nothing--quiet
    I may be wrong but I don't think the MI congress has the guts to overide the Governor---time will tell

    It has not been voted on by the entire senate. I has only been voted out of committee.

    Passed in the House by a 2:1 margin, approved unanimously by the Senate Judiciary Committee. However, the Senate leaders are giving in to a Gov. Snyder request to hold off on a vote, even though it appears that it will pass with a supermajority (enough to override Snyder's veto). MSP wants to maintain easy access to all pistol owner records, and Snyder, cozy with Obama, is not a real supporter of Second Amendment rights to begin with. There are only a few sessions left in this legislative year, and we need to bring MASSIVE pressure on these legislators to get this on the agenda for a vote while there is still time - or we have to start all over again next year.

    Contact Sen. Richardville (Senate Majority Leader) and Gov. Snyder ASAP, and urge them to get this on the agenda WITHOUT THE MSP AMENDMENTS - and copy the senator from your district.

    I sent the following email to Sen. Richardville today:

    Just a form letter. Everyone who has written the Governor about this has gotten an identical one.

    For sure. But if a bill does hit the Governor's desk something has to give. At this point I wonder if the game plan is to stall until after the election. :uhoh:

    the gov snyder,has refused to sign hb 5225, Ooo

    After the election,maybe old fuff has somthing,the state police have a steak in this,theyll loose jobs in register dept,amd state checks may allow some police with domestic violence covictions pre 2001 ,and draft dodgers who were pardoned,may be considered prohibited persons,because pre 2001 felons with non specifide felony convictions could posses guns under michigan law.

    Actually, it does. The senate has sessions scheduled for Nov. 8, 27-29, Dec. 4-6, 11-13 (tentatively), 18-20 (tentatively). And they wonder why we continue to pursue a part-time state legislature like most other states have. http://www.senate.michigan.gov/tvschedule/calendar.html

    I received a similar letter from Lt. Gov. Calley some time ago; he is the president of the state senate.

    Sorry -- my misunderstanding! You are correct. the 10/17 session was the last one for this month; in fact, it was the ONLY session for October, and there were only 6 sessions the entire month of September. This is done (though I disagree with the reasoning) so that legislators have an opportunity to focus on their campaigns before the elections. I disagree because anyone running against an incumbent has to find a way to both continue working AND run a campaign at the same time. The advantage goes to the incumbent.

    Actually, by not having to worry about time-consuming background checks (NICS would take care of this) and maintaining a pistol owner registry, all those officers currently assigned to those duties can concentrate instead on REAL police work!

    There is no reason that letter writers can't point out they've noticed that action on this bill was put off until after the election, and should it go down in flames you will still remember when future elections come along. A few letters won't concern them. A continuing flood will. :evil:
