Repeal the state requirement to seek police permission to purchase a firearm by traveling to a local police station and obtaining a permit to purchase.
Repeal the requirement to register a completely legally purchased and owned firearm by a law-abiding citizen to be registered with the government through the police.
Adopt the use of the federally-funded National Instant Criminal Background Check System.
Default to the federal standard of prohibited persons and each purchase would still require a background check.
CutMichiganís costs by using the federally-administered instant background check system and eliminate wasted man-hours of tracking lawful gun owners inMichigan.
All good points IMO.
I never did understand the whole concept of asking for police permission to purchase firearms, always seemed a bit ridiculous. I don't know the actual wording of the law but just by going off the point in context it's pretty surprising someone hasn't tried to sue.
Ought, this is a bit of a different topic and the news is a few months old (forgot to make a thread on it), check out what Kansas is trying to do with regards to concealed carry.
Who knows. I'm glad they atleast considered it. I don't follow closely as I would like on how the Kansas House and Senate work and the bills that go through but the power in the Senate is weighted heavily on the Republicans. Kansas may be one of those states that decides to make headline news out of the blue.
Good news for Michigan. Maybe a few other states will follow in a similar suit.
Most of the other states that require permits are unlikely to follow. SB3340 is in front of the Illinois Senate and would repeal the FOID card regimen, but it does not have a snowball's chance in hell of passing with enough votes to overcome Governor Quinn's inevitable veto. It would be more likely that Chicago Mayor Rahm Emmanuel's idea for a statewide handgun registry will be proposed and passed into law there.
