Michiganders Rally to Promote ‘Constitutional Carry’ Laws

Armed and vocal protesters converged on the state capitol this past Saturday, in effort to make Michigan the nation’s fifth ‘Constitutional Carry’ state. The group wants all Michiganders to be legally allowed to carry with out needing a license, and repealing laws banning guns in certain places.

The Second Amendment of the United States Constitution reads,

A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed

and it’s the topic of armed people that had people rallying in the streets of Lansing to make Michigan a ‘Constitutional Carry‘ state, easing gun laws and eliminating ‘no-carry‘ zones, such as schools, anywhere serving alc0hol, churches, and venues holding over 2,500 people.

Currently, to carry a gun in Michigan, residents have to complete a gun safety training course, be felony free, and be registered with the state, along with other requirements, as well as having firearm-free zones.  The ‘Constitutional Carry’ laws will allow all adults in Michigan to lawfully carry, and eliminates carry-free zones.  The laws would not affect felons.

Critics of the movement claim looser gun laws will lead to an increase in crime and will lead to more guns in the hands of dangerous people.  Supporters obviously disagree.  John Roshek, president of the Citizen’s League for Self Defense, was quoted

What we are trying to accomplish by this rally and future and ongoing efforts, is having our Second Amendment rights restored back to their original intent as laid out in our Constitution by our Founding Fathers

Research shows that ‘Constitutional Carry’ states are both safer and more dangerous, so it’s definitely a debatable topic.  There are still many steps along the way to making Michigan the fifth ‘Constitutional Carry’ state.
