We are happy to announce that yesterday (5/12/2015) the Brandishing bills, which were written by MOC's legislative team, became law. These bills, for the first time in Michigan, define brandishing and in doing so make it clear: OPEN CARRY IS NOT BRANDISHING!
Thanks is also due to Representative Klint Kesto (House Judiciary Chairman) for giving this legislation such a prompt hearing in the House Judiciary Committee as well as Senator Rick Jones (Senate Judiciary Chairman) for bringing up these bills in Senate Judiciary.
The timing of the signing of these bills (which will take effect in 90 days) is especially important given our lawsuit against Clio. Clio's attorneys have said the case should be dismissed because open carry tantamount to brandishing. The signing of this legislation will make it so our attorney can promptly squash this argument.
