MI Gun Owners Update on HB 4490
I hope the Michiganders here will swamp this committee with e-mails and spread this info around. This so called safety inspection has got to stop!!
Registration Reform in Michigan! Friday, April 04, 2008
Please Contact the Committee Members Today!
House Bill 4490 will be heard on Tuesday, April 15 in the House Committee on Tourism, Outdoor Recreation, and Natural Resources. Introduced by State Representative Paul Opsommer (R-93) HB4490 would repeal the required "safety inspection" for newly obtained handguns. HB 4490 would also require law enforcement agencies to destroy "safety inspection" records on file. Current Michigan law requires anyone who comes into possession of a pistol to take it to the police or sheriff’s department for a safety inspection. The requirement of a safety inspection is a burdensome waste of time for law-abiding gun owners and HB4490 will end that inconvenience.
Please contact the members of the House Committee on Tourism, Outdoor Recreation, and Natural Resources and respectfully urge them to support passage of HB4490.

It's nothing more than a back door registration, and at least in my county, about a five minute session at most. They don't break it and check the serial number against your purchase paper work. We're not NYC or Jersey. It'd be nice to see it go; but, more importantly is the bill that cancells out the places that are off limits by law.

Yep, the only "safety" part of it was when the desk SGT made sure it was unloaded then handed it to the civilian clerk to do the paperwork... I'll do some emailing, for what its worth.
