    Talking Good by Safety inspection.

    Senate Committee Votes to eliminate 'Safety Inspection' Requirement
    Legislative Update By David Felbeck, MCRGO's Legislative Analyst

    On June 10th the Senate Judiciary Committee voted unanimously to recommend the passage of SB 370 and SB 371. These bills, in conjunction with HB 4490 and HB 4491, which have already been passed by the House, will eliminate the requirement that any pistol purchaser must have the pistol "safety inspected" by the local police within ten days of purchase.

    SB 370 was sponsored by Senator Richardville, and SB 371 by Senator Cropsey. About twelve people, excluding the Committee and staff, were present. Following an explanation of the bills by a representative of Senator Richardville, MCRGO's legislative analyst briefly described the difficulties under present law faced by a pistol purchaser and made a plea not only for passage of the current bills but for complete elimination of the pistol purchase permit as well. No one else testified, either for or against these bills.

    When these bills and the companion bills are passed by both houses, and the governor signs them, prospective purchasers of pistols will still have to obtain purchase permits from their local law enforcement office. CPL licensees, as is currently the case, will not be required to obtain purchase permits.

    Committee members supporting both bills were Senators Kuipers (chairman), Cropsey, Whitmer, Clarke, and Pruse. Senators Sanborn and Patterson were not present.

    The bills now go to the full Senate for action.

    I'm optomisitc that it goes through, but not holding my breath. It seems the last I had read, the whole bill was watered down and not going to make much of a difference. When I read the update on MCRGO I was surprised to see it in close to the original state. I didn't see anything relating to expulsion of the "safety inspections" records done in the past.

    I am guessing this is only for the "safety inspection"? will registration of all firearms still be required? if so... what's the point?

    The "Safety Inspection" as it is called by the state is what is oft referred to as "Registration" so if we are no longer required to have one then we loose the latter as well.

    no more registration? in that case it's a big step in the right direction.

    I hope the Governor signs the bills. It shouldn't be up to one person to element the passage. Scarecrow, I didn't expect any bad news from your range report. You purchased top quality and we had no doubts. glad you enjoyed it.
