Rep Hoitenga bill establishes option for lifetime concealed pistol license

first_img State Rep. Michele Hoitenga this week introduced legislation offering Michigan residents who can legally own a gun the option to obtain a concealed pistol license with no expiration date.Hoitenga, of Manton, said Michigan needs to remove hurdles for law-abiding citizens who want to exercise their Second Amendment rights.“The state and federal constitutions give people the fundamental right to keep and bear arms,” Hoitenga said. “Requiring people to apply and reapply for permission to carry a gun every five years creates a costly and unnecessary hurdle. Establishing a lifetime CPL option is a step in the right direction. It will eliminate the time and money law-abiding citizens spend in order to receive renew their license.”Under Hoitenga’s legislation, House Bill 5414, the new lifetime CPL would be available in addition to the standard five-year license. An application fee of $150 would apply to lifetime licenses, $50 more than the licensing fee for the standard license.Hoitenga said her legislation makes no changes to the initial background check and training required to obtain a CPL.House Bill 5414 has been referred to the House Judiciary Committee for consideration.### 18Jan Rep.
