    Thank you for posting that. The MGO Board of Directors had time to vote and support this bill. I have finally figured out how to keep informed about upcoming committee hearings considering bills of interest to MGO.

    I watched the meeting live.

    I heard two points of concern regarding the bill, as currently written.

    1. The 1-Year "grace period" should be a one-time only thing. Five years later, you forget again...maybe it should be a misdemeanor vs a civil infraction as with the first time around, as this bill would provide.

    I don't know about anybody else, but if my renewal notice doesn't show up for whatever reason, the probability of me forgetting to renew my drivers license, Electrical Contractor's License, CPL, HAM Radio license, NRA Trainers Certification, etc, etc. is just as probable in the future, even if I was granted grace the first time I forgot.

    When folks move, there is NO requirement to inform the County Clerk that you moved. The County Clerk is required to send a renewal reminder and renewal PIN (for online renewal) to the last known address within 3-6 months prior to CPL expiration. It's not a perfect system. If the State was handling the entire process, your CPL renewal address would be known via the SoS database (unless you move out of State entirely, at which point, renewal notices wouldn't matter anyway).

    For the reasons stated (and more), making this a one-time only grace period is ridiculous.

    2. It was suggested that the bill needs to be tweaked to NOT grant any grace period to anyone subject to pending felony charges.

    Obviously, they are unaware of 28.428 which requires immediate suspension to a CPL of an individual CHARGED with a felony or a DQ'ing misdemeanor. The law already addresses this situation. There is a HUGE difference between a suspended CPL (for the above reasons) and a lapsed CPL due to failure to renew on-time.

    I plan to send the above arguments/info to Rep. Matt Hall (sponsor of the bill) to help him push this bill further.

    It was read into record that Michigan Gun Owners supports this bill.

    Anyone that would like to view, here is a link (starts at the 29:00 mark):

    THis bill is once again coming before the Judiciary Committee this morning at 9am. Unfortunately, it sounds like the "fix it" provision has been removed in S-1.
