    Do you pay to get your gun registered

    I am in Michigan. the last two pistols I have bought I took up to the sheriffs office to register and had to pay $5.00 bucks. I don't mind so much but someone said I should not be charged?

    I don't think you should have to pay either but I live in a free state (so far). I suspect they can charge a reasonable fee to doing the paperwork, even freedom of information act requests can have fees associated for the cost of materials, copying/etc.

    I thought that MI did away with the registration process, just recently...

    Registration fee? = Unfair fee for an unfair regisration.

    None of that gargage here in FL...

    I have to register my pistols in Van Buren county, on the west side of the state. There is no fee to register, but a fee for your permit to purchase or cpl. My instructor told me that the whole gun registration thing was being fought over.

    MI does have a pistol permit registration fee. Pistols must be registered.

    We don't do that here in FA (free america)

    Aint that some crap.

    You got to pay to REGISTER a handgun that they require registered?

    You people need to change the laws(and the people that make them) up there and get in line with the rest of the free states where there is no registration.

    It ain't registration

    They call it a safety inspection, and it is up to the individual departments if they want to charge, but no they are not suppose to. N yes we do have legislation underway to do away with the green card.

    Man, I have been against gun registration all along. Granded I am only 22, but am old enough to know this is how Hitler took over power of Germany. Everyone had their guns registered and they went door to door collecting them. I really wish I didn't have to, but was given 10 days or else!

    No registration here either. I guess if it were to start, I'd find alternatives. Not to say I'd blatantly do something illegal----just I'd be finding all the loopholes the law and government usually find for themselves and balance the scales sort of. I was charged $10 for my DMV driving record the other day and almost had a tumor over that---(one page, three lines, showing no violations all in order to keep my insurance rate low). The system now compared to a few months ago, is really starting to bug me. Prices and cost of living day-to-day are going up, and the system knows this and has every intention of kicking citizens where it hurts the most---almost like they are intentionally trying to provoke something from the masses and declare a national emergency. In my twisted mind---we'll all fall into that trap soon enough and then they'll have due cause for extending control. Wait and see. Just a small rant, take it however you like it, or just change the channel.
