(May 1, 2015) – Supporter of sportsmen and knife users, Senator Mike Green (R-31) introduced SB 305 to prohibit political subdivisions in Michigan from imposing certain restrictions on the transportation, possession, carrying, sale, transfer, purchase, gift, devise, licensing, registration, or use of knife or components of knives; and to repeal acts and parts of acts.
