Registration Reform in Michigan!

Friday, April 4, 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.
