Michigan: Your Immediate Help Needed- NRA's Top Agenda Item in Jeopardy!

Posted: 09.20.12 11:00 AM

Please contact*your state*Senator and Governor Snyder*TODAY to get registration repealed*before it is too late!House Bill 5225,*legislation*that would eliminate the state handgun “permit-to-purchase” and registration requirements, is currently stalled in the*Michigan*Senate. The reason for this delay stems from*opposition by the Michigan State Police*and Governor*Rick*Snyder’s office asking*the state Senate leadership to*"hold"*H.B. 5225.* H.B. 5225, introduced by state Representative Paul Opsommer (R-93), would abolish the bureaucratic “permit-to-purchase” for handguns.* This system became obsolete when the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) took effect in 1998.* Under the current state system, gun buyers must apply with their local law enforcement agency before being authorized to buy a handgun.* This “permit” is valid for only one gun and it expires after ten days.* Since 1998, federal law has required a national criminal records check for the purchase of any firearm from any licensed gun dealer in every state.** Accordingly, the*state-required "permit" is*duplicative,*wasteful and antiquated.**This legislative package includes two companion bills House Bill 5498, sponsored by state Representative Richard LeBlanc (D-18), and House Bill 5499, sponsored by state Representative Ray Franz (R-101).
