    Thumbs up Michigan residents....

    In MI you can own a full auto if you file the proper BATF forms but not a silencer, I quote

    Preamble:

    Michigan law 750.224 bans automatic weapons, suppressors, billy clubs, and a number of other things. This same law provides an exception in section 3(c) where you may own these items if properly licensed by the federal government.

    Problem:

    Michigan law fails to define what "licensing" means.

    Federal:

    As far as the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (BATFE) is concerned all you need to do is file and get approved BATFE form 5320.4 to own any item restricted by the National Firearms Act (NFA).

    Halfway There:

    The Michigan Attorney General issues opinion 7183 stating that in Michigan, approval of BATFE form 5320.4 constitutes a license... for a "machine gun". If form 5320.4 approval is a license for an automatic weapon, then why is it not a license when it is approved for other NFA regulated items?

    Action:

    We are asking that the Michigan Attorney General issue an official opinion regarding the other “restricted” items banned by MCL 750.224 indicating, that if an item is properly registered by the BATFE, it is considered to be licensed in the state of Michigan. We are also calling upon the Michigan state legislature to update Michigan's law to recognize the federal authority of the BATFE and NFA registration as legal licensing in Michigan.

    Why do we want or care about silencers??? Ever seen or heard an silenced 9 or .45? you do not even need hearing protection, the action makes more noise as the gun functions... Use of one could easily open up new places to target practice due to present noise issues. So please take a moment to sign the petition...
