Michigan Update: Your Help Still Needed to Repeal Handgun Registration
As previously reported here by the NRA-ILA, the Michigan State Police are still trying to defeat House Bill 5225, legislation that would eliminate the state handgun “permit-to-purchase” and registration requirements in Michigan. This important legislation is currently pending consideration by the state Senate, so the Senate leadership needs to hear from gun owners across Michigan today! This bill has faced increased opposition by the MSP. The Michigan State Police, never friendly to pro-gun reforms (including the current state Right-to-Carry law) has even proposed a number of crippling amendments to HB 5225 that would perpetuate Michigan’s antiquated registration system in the event that they are unable to stop its passage. The next legislative session is scheduled to take place on Wednesday, October 17, for only one day. Please contact your state Senator and Governor Rick Snyder TODAY and again before that date! Respectfully urge them to reject any hostile amendments to HB 5225, and to end Michigan's costly and unnecessary gun registration scheme as well as the onerous handgun purchase permit process.
