Gun Rights Front & Center Of Issues in November 2018 Election

Michigan – -(AmmoLand.com)- Elections have consequences. And next month's election for America will prove to have a dramatic impact on legal gun owners.

Our state and country can either pursue a path of liberty laid down by the Founders, or we can descend into an Orwellian socialist system where individual rights are heavily curtailed by ignorance, hate and mob rule.

Let's imagine it's a year from now, the fall of 2019. We can contemplate two very different political scenarios.

In the first one, Michigan voters have maintained a pro-gun Legislature and elected the first governor who is solidly supportive of self-defense rights in a generation. Permitless carry has been signed into law. Michigan's pistol registry has been erased bringing Michigan in line with most other states. Many pistol free zones have been eliminated. Young adults can get a provisional concealed pistol license at age 18. Preemption has been given teeth, making it much easier to enforce.

In the second one, a new governor who has campaigned alongside Moms Demand Action combined with an anti-gun Legislature has adopted the first gun control laws in Michigan in 30 years. Sales of modern rifles are now banned in the state. Pistol free zones have been extended to all public property. Red flag laws result in the seizure of firearms without due process. Registration has been extended to long guns. There is now a 30 day waiting period to purchase a firearm. Preemption has been eliminated. Wayne County has adopted a sin tax on ammunition sales which is now only available for purchase from local police departments in limited numbers. Other urban counties are adopting their own restrictions.

The key difference between these two very possible realities is who turns out to vote on Tuesday, November 6, 2018. We hope it will be you and that you'll take the time to review and support candidates who support responsible gun owners.

    What happened with HB 4416? HB 4970? HB 4003? Why is no-one asking about Constitutional Carry, which has already passed the house and has been sitting at the Senate Committee for Government Operations without justifiable reasoning for months now? Why Michigan isn’t and will never be a State which a mass shooting will occur, and therefore has no reason to not enact Constitutional Carry? In 2008 the Heller decision made clear what it meant to bear arms. Scalia quoted Justice Ginsburg’s writing in a previous case.  From cornell.edu: Justice Ginsburg wrote that “[s]urely a most familiar meaning is, as the Constitution’s… Read more »

    I’m completely with you on this. What the hell happened to the constitutional carry proposal from over a year ago? Why is it still sitting in the Senate? This is a major fight for the second amendment and no one has brought it up during debates and campaigns. Even politicians that are “pro-gun” don’t speak up about this essential bill to protect our Constitution.

    This bill 1639 and initiative measure no. 940 are against the 2nd amendment rights. Thank for putting the screws to honest gun owners.
