State Rep. Paul Opsommer (R-93) announced today a new bi-partisan package of resolutions that will assert Michigan's right to bear arms under its Constitution, the supremacy of the Second Amendment over the Commerce Clause, and the will of the Michigan legislature to not recognize or enforce unconstitutional firearm restrictions placed upon its citizens.



Opsommer's resolution, HCR 009, speaks directly to the many new federal firearm laws that are being introduced. "Even though I am only a State legislator, some of these federal proposals are so egregious that you really don't have a choice but to get involved," said Opsommer. "They would trample over our own Constitution and firearm laws, and I don't think we can sit idly by to just wait and see if and when these bills become law".



Opsommer said he will also be reintroducing his bill HB 6518 (2008) and expanding it so that it also addresses the new agenda Illinois Congressman Bobby Rush has added to his anti-firearm's wish list. The bill was introduced last year in reaction to coercive attempts by Mayor Bloomberg to create new video surveillance databases of gun purchases with Wal-Mart.



"Congressman Rush's legislation would also call for other biometric schemes that would include the fingerprinting of law abiding citizens and a new Attorney General approved picture ID card," said Opsommer. "We were able to halt provisions last year that could have required a new and vague national ID card in order to buy firearms, and we will do so again whether it is to register firearms, ammunition, or handloading equipment."

I have contacted Opsommer and he will be reintroduction HB 6518 in March. I have also contacted all the GOP rep's in Michigan and urged support for his bill, I recommend you all do the same. Enough emails arriving and it will make a difference (I hope)

If this is not stopped in Michigan, it will spread across the US.




People in Michigan, please take a few minutes and contact your Congressperson and your representative.



Please join the NRA, if your not a member.
