MI Gun Owners Update on HB 4490

Post by manicmechanic » April 5th, 2008, 11:41 am

I haven't seen any other Michiganders on here, but just in case, we need to swamp this committee with e-mails and pass the info around. This so called safety inspection has got to stop!!

Registration Reform in Michigan! Friday, April 04, 2008
Please Contact the Committee Members Today!
House Bill 4490 will be heard on Tuesday, April 15 in the House Committee on Tourism, Outdoor Recreation, and Natural Resources. Introduced by State Representative Paul Opsommer (R-93) HB4490 would repeal the required "safety inspection" for newly obtained handguns. HB 4490 would also require law enforcement agencies to destroy "safety inspection" records on file. Current Michigan law requires anyone who comes into possession of a pistol to take it to the police or sheriff’s department for a safety inspection. The requirement of a safety inspection is a burdensome waste of time for law-abiding gun owners and HB4490 will end that inconvenience.
Please contact the members of the House Committee on Tourism, Outdoor Recreation, and Natural Resources and respectfully urge them to support passage of HB4490.

MI Gun Owners Update on HB 4490

I'm no longer a resident of Michigan, but four of my handguns have been "inspected" there. I hold the law enforcement personnel in the highest regard, but I don't recall seeing anyone with gunsmithing expertise. It is pretty much a registration program under the guise of "safety," and it is a burdensome pain in the neck. Speak up, Michaganders!
