Opposing harmful legislation backed by the gun lobby

Giffords is working in opposition to House Bill 4416, a dangerous new proposal that would allow any eligible person to purchase a firearm and carry concealed handguns in public without a permit. This bill would have a disastrous impact on public safety and make it harder for law enforcement to identify prohibited individuals, like felons and domestic abusers, who are illegally carrying loaded, hidden guns in public. In January 2015, Giffords led a successful campaign to urge Michigan Governor Rick Snyder to veto a bill that would have allowed people with domestic violence related restraining orders to be issued concealed weapon permits.

Michiganders would also be impacted by a gun lobby-backed bill currently under consideration in Congress. This legislation, the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act, would force each state to accept the concealed carry laws of every other state, even if their standards for carrying a loaded, hidden gun in public are weaker. Giffords is working with Congressional leaders and Michigan stakeholders to highlight the public safety risks Michigan would face from federally mandated concealed carry reciprocity.
