Michigan gun law to change
Beginning Wednesday, Michigan will no longer require a post-purchase safety inspection of handguns purchased. Currently, every time a handgun is purchased in Michigan, whether it is a commercial sale or a private sale between two individuals, the purchaser must take the pistol to their local police department and present it for "safety inspection." During these inspections, actual checks for safety really never took place. What was accomplished was that the make, model, caliber and serial number of the gun was registered to the purchaser. The Legislature has recognized the hypocrisy of this process and will now trust its citizens to send them the correct information regarding the handgun to be registered.
State Police or Stazi
Since when do the State Police have any legislative role in this country. Their job is to enforce the laws enacted by our legislature, not to lobby for infringing upon our constitutional rights. The Govenor of your State should reprimand them and insist they do their job and let the Legislature do theirs.
