(MPRN-Lansing) Legislation to overhaul the way Michigan issues concealed pistol licenses (CPLs) and regulates air guns will get a committee hearing on Tuesday in Lansing. 

Bills to overhaul Michigan’s process of issuing concealed pistol licenses have cleared the state Senate. The legislation no longer contains controversial language that led Governor Rick Snyder to veto a similar bill last month.

Republican state Senator Mike Green is the bill’s sponsor. He says he’s happy it was the first bill the Senate passed in the new legislative session.


A controversial gun bill similar to one that was recently vetoed by Governor Rick Snyder is likely to get a committee hearing this week.
