Michigan: Registration Reform Heads to Senate!

Please Contact Your State Senator!

House Bill 4490 passed the House on Wednesday April 16, by a vote of 98 to 10. 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. HB4490 will now head to the Senate were it could be taken up in the near future.
