    The states have the right to attempt to repeal the 2nd amendment if 3/4ths of all of them vote to do so. That about sums up their rights in this case.

    there are actually 2 bills going through Lansing right now:
    * HB 5972 of 2010
    Weapons; licensing; requirement for purchase permit with every new pistol purchase; eliminate, and provide procedures for registration of pistols. Amends secs. 1, 2 & 2b of 1927 PA 372 (MCL 28.421 et seq.). TIE BAR WITH: HB 5973'10
    Last Action: 3/18/2010 referred to Committee on Tourism, Outdoor Recreation and Natural Resources
    * HB 5973 of 2010
    Weapons; licensing; requirement for purchase permit with every new pistol purchase; eliminate, and provide procedures for registration of pistols. Amends secs. 5l, 9a, 9b & 9c of 1927 PA 372 (MCL 28.425l et seq.) & repeals sec. 2a of 1927 PA 372 (MCL 28.422a). TIE BAR WITH: HB 5972'10

    Right now all you need to get a handgun in MI is the purchase permit. It's a pain, but much easier than it use to be. Use to have to take your gun in for a "safety" check (read underhand registration)

    The sad part of this is the vote was 5-4. It should have been 9-0.

    I don't need a permit for a shotgun, at least that's what several people have told me.


    But there's no way I wouldn't qualify for a gun license under Michigan Law. I have no criminal record. My job may even qualify me for a CCW, providing I complete the required course that I can take at many different locations throughout the metro Detroit area.


    At least I know where to post for gun advice, should I decide to get one:).

    That you do. :D

    And the first piece of advice that I can give you is that when you see one of your clients on your doorstep, it's too late. Also, the NRA has a superb pistol instruction course. I took the instructors' course and teach it to my troops in addition to the Army's Pre-Marksmanship Training, and I've never had a shooter fail to qualify after I've coached them (and considering some of the loggies that I've had to coach, that's actually rather impressive). Even if you don't buy a gun, you can take the course and shoot rentals at a range, so that you have the skill when you need it.

    I gave my Dad a Browning 9mm High Power a couple weeks ago, he lives in Hale, MI. He took it back up to get it registered, they won't register it and now I have to drive all the way up there to get it back before they confiscate it.

    He has a carry permit that is completely useless, because I can't give my own father a gun without permission first. Yet another reason for me to stay in Tennessee.
