Relaxing Michigan gun restrictions is part of a national trend
John Wisely , Detroit Free Press Published 10:23 p.m. ET June 11, 2017

Since 2001, the state has:

    Expanded access to concealed weapon permits
    Passed a law allowing Michigan gun owners to "stand your ground"
    Streamlined pistol purchases by allowing gun dealers to use instant computer background checks
    Eliminated county gun boards, which had decided who received a carry permit
    Barred local governments from passing gun ordinances

Methinks that preemption was enacted just a wee bit before 2001

These latest bills still must clear the State Senate and then go to Gov. Rick Snyder, who hasn't said whether he'll sign them. Spokeswoman Anna Heaton said Snyder typically doesn't comment on legislation until he sees the final language, but she did note that the Michigan State Police were among the law enforcement agencies that testified against the bill.

"It's going to be a long-shot to get him to sign it," said Tom Lambert, president of Michigan Open Carry, a gun-rights advocacy group which supports the legislation. "But we have to try. Many good people are being harmed by our current laws.
"A well balanced breakfast being necessary to the start of a healthy day, the right of the people to keep and eat food shall not be infringed "  - Who has a right to keep and eat food, The People or A Well Balanced Breakfast?
