Michigan: Committee will Consider Repeal of “Permit to Purchase” Next Week

Thursday, June 10, 2010

The Michigan House Tourism, Outdoor Recreation and Natural Resources Committee will consider a pair of bills which will eliminate Michigan’s onerous “permit-to-purchase” for handguns. 

House Bill 5972, sponsored by State Representative Kim Meltzer (R-33), and House Bill 5973, authored by State Representative Joel Sheltrown (D-103), would eliminate this unnecessary bureaucratic obstacle.  Under the current system, gun buyers must apply with their local law enforcement agency and pass a written test before being authorized to buy a handgun.  The “permit” is good for only one gun and it expires after 10 days. 

The Committee will continue to hear testimony next week from opposition to this important Second Amendment legislation.  Please continue to contact committee members and respectfully ask them to support HB 5972 and HB 5973.  Contact information can be found below:
