APPEARS IN Legal & Legislation

Important Michigan Pro-Gun Bill to be Heard Soon!

Friday, October 12, 2007

State Representative Paul Opsommer (R-93) has introduced legislation that seeks to repeal the required "safety inspection" for newly obtained handguns.  House Bill 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.

HB4490 is expected to receive a hearing in the House Committee on Tourism, Outdoor Recreation, and Natural Resources soon.  Please contact the members of the Committee and respectfully urge them to support passage of HB4490.
