Contact your state Senator TODAY in support of Senate Bill 610
This week, the Michigan Senate is expected to vote on Senate Bill 610, legislation that would lift Michigan’s ban on the private ownership of short-barreled rifles and shotguns. SB 610, sponsored by state Senator Michael Green (R-31), passed unanimously in the Senate Judiciary Committee last month. It is important that you contact your state Senator TODAY and urge him or her to vote for Senate Bill 610.
Short-barreled rifles and shotguns are already strictly regulated under the National Firearms Act, requiring their buyers to undergo a background investigation, pay a $200 tax and register these firearms with the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives. SB 610 would conform Michigan law to federal law and align Michigan with more than 40 other states that already allow their residents to possess these firearms.
Contact your state Senator and urge him or her to vote for Senate Bill 610 and help repeal this long-standing state gun ban.
