"Jelly" Bryce was a serious lawman who could also please a crowd with his expert marksmanship. How good was he? From the pages of American Rifleman, Sheriff Jim Wilson offers an interesting profile about this Oklahoma gunfighter:
Joe Ferrera and I are happy to announce we'll be teaching Pocket Knife Techniques once again. Learn the key aspects of various types of knives, the laws regarding owning and carrying them (including the new changes re: automatic knives), offensive and defensive techniques, and more. No need to bring a knife, as well be using training knives. Then feel free to shop in CQT's pro shop for that quality blade.
Some reading material about Cooper's Color Code.
Keeping in mind that Jerry is a competitive shooter, most of what he talks about plays well in the combat arena as well. Lots of good knowledge here. I don't agree with the finger in front of the trigger guard, though.
"State Rep. Gary Howell (R-North Branch) is the bill’s sponsor. He says there are at least 30 local governments in Michigan that have gun ordinances that are barred by the state’s firearm preemption law."
*** Breaking - Michigan House Committee Passes Constitutional Carry Package. ***
Moments ago, the Michigan House Judiciary Committee approved HB 4416-4419 by a ...vote of 6-4 along party lines and sent the bills to the floor with the recommendation they pass.
A few small changes were made in committee. The only one worth noting was a significant change to disclosure. Under the adopted change, disclosure would change to upon request rather than immediate as it is now. Disclosure would also apply to anyone carrying a concealed firearm, not just those "licensed under the act" (MI CPL holders) as it is currently. Lastly, the fine for failing to disclose would be reduced from a $500 fine and 6 month license suspension, to just a $100 fine.
Amendments attempting to require training for anyone constitutionally carrying (a defacto license), attempting to apply the CPL disqualifiers to those constitutionally carrying (incredibly onerous for officers to enforce), and attempting to maintain the current severe disclosure penalties were all NOT adopted.
The bills will now head to the "floor" where they will await a vote from the full Michigan House of Representatives.
This is the time to contact your rep and urge them to support these bill in caucus and on the floor. If you have already contacted your rep, CONTACT THEM AGAIN!

This would be awesome.
I have a draft to a bill that repeals the mandate to register your pistol with your state government. Only six states require that you do this. (Michigan is one... of them!)
To me, it seems that if it's a constitutional right to keep and bear arms, then the government doesn't need to know how many pistols you own.
What are your thoughts? Should citizens be required to register their pistols with the government?
