MI: Governor Snyder Bows to Media Pressure to Veto Gun Reform

It appears that Governor Snyder was looking for an excuse to veto this reform legislation.   Governor Snyder did much the same in 2012.

“The statements being made by anti-gun groups about this bill are factually incorrect," Chris W. Cox, executive director of the NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action, said in a statement.

"The legislation does not expose victims of domestic abuse to any additional risks of violence. The fact is that this bill would have provided victims of domestic violence increased protections against would-be abusers, while protecting our constitutional rights of self-defense and due process.”

Snyder, who has a mixed record on gun bills, vetoed a broader version of the CPL legislation in 2012 shortly after a mass school shooting in Connecticut. That bill concerned the governor because it would have also allowed individuals with extra training to carry concealed weapons in so-called "gun-free" zones.
