Michigan: House Judiciary Committee Expected to Vote Tomorrow on House Air Gun Reclassification Bills

Wednesday, October 1, 2014

Tomorrow, the House Judiciary Committee is expected to consider and vote on House Bills 5450,5749 and 5750, part of the Air Gun Reclassification Package.  If enacted into law, this legislative package would align Michigan’s definition of “firearm” with the federal definition; such that “firearm” would be redefined to mean “any weapon which will, is designed to, or may be readily converted to expel a projectile by action of an explosive.”

The Air Gun Reclassification Package seeks to achieve pragmatic and much-needed reform by redefining the term “firearm” in the Michigan Code to exclude devices that propel a projectile by gas, spring or air.  The goal of this package is to relieve Michiganders, and those seeking to engage in interstate commerce with Michigan residents, from outdated and unduly burdensome restraints on the transfer, purchase and possession of most air guns.

Using the contact information provided below, please call and e-mail members of the House Judiciary Committee and urge them to vote for HB 5450, HB 5749 and HB 5750.
