    An Attorney General's opinion of 7-17-2006 held that police departments must process firearms during ALL normal business hours. This would be anytime the records office is open. Maybe your city hasn't gotten the message yet. The full text is published on the AG's website.

    I carry them just to avoid any hassle if stopped. I agree that the "safety inspection" is a total waste of time.

    I had this same problem. The inspection revolved around a single Sgt's schedule. Went in one day and he wasn't there, they told me to come back the next day. Another time though, he recognized me and offered to to do it for me "after hours" because of my work schedule that week. Should be more customer friendly, but for something that you do only so often, I don't mind.

    I carry mine.

    For those of you thinking this is a newer law, it was passed in 1927 along with the creation of the county gun boards and the requirement of the permit to carry on a discretionary basis approved by the gun boards. Thank the KKK for those.

    Unfortunately it is only his opinion, which really doesn't mean much. The Dept's do not have to do what an opinion says.
    I have went round and round with the chief in my city and he says he will do what he wants until is made a rule (I forgot the offical term for rule, sorry).

    Don't carry mine(not enough room inthe wallet for all the cards). The last "safety inspection" was a few Deputies I knew looking at it while the secretary was typing up the card. There is not inspection done, just serial # recording done.

    In MI, an AG's opinion carries force of law. Opinions can only be requested by a legislator. It has to do with the state firearms preemption law. I expect MCRGO will take a municipality to court over it before long.

    I brught a copy with me the last time I had to go and presented it to the lady there.
    She said that I was not the first person to bring one of those and that there was nothing she could do about it and to write city hall.

    By Law, you are not required to carry the green registration card with you.
    and yes, the AG's opinion in Michigan is as good as law.
    Open carry in Michigan is legal, but that does not mean you would not get stopped and get some flack over it in some more populated areas.

They left mine in the case (since they could see the serial #, did some paperwork, and let me go.

    Celtic: I've heard the same thing, but I leave mine in the case the gun came in. Even if they held my gun for some reason, I figure I could go get it.
    Geez...glad I live in FL. I came home from the range today and issued my own safety inspection. As luck would have it, I was able to clean 2 guns without government help -- and without shooting myself. (Not sure I want to run that risk again!!!)

    I just left Michigan in August for the free state of WV.

    I destroyed all my green cards once I got here.

    "Safety Inspection Certificte" required when hunting

    I tossed my cards this year when I moved to Nevada.

    For those still in Michigan: the DNR had (and I assume still has a regulation) that requires you to have the green card with you while hunting with a handgun. They used to have a paragraph or two regarding handguns in the pamplet they put out each year on hunting rules and seasons.
