Ancient Time Bomb in Michigan Firearm Law Defused

Time Bomb

The repeal of the oldest active Michigan gun law was made effective today with Senate Bill 219, now Public Act 95 of 2017, going into effect. The bill makes numerous minor tweaks to the concealed pistol licensing statute; however, it also makes one major change to a law that was so dangerous, we've purposely kept quiet about it ... until now.

It's Time to Opt-Out of Handgun Registration. Here's How.

The information contained in this page is not legal advice. We are not lawyers, if you'd like individualized legal advice, we'd be happy to refer you to some Law Practices with known firearm specializations.  Also, we can not control that you can be arrested or cited for engaging in 100% lawful activity as it happens everyday for all sorts of activities or actions. All we can do is relay what the law says and what case law dictates , or what it does not dictate.

This article has nothing to do with carrying a concealed pistol or with carrying a pistol in a vehicle. This article deals ONLY with the various aspects of licenses to purchase/possess and registration.

Michigan is one of those pesky states with handgun registration. It's been around since about 1913,  which even predates New York's by about 18 years and Hawaii's draconian registration requirement by about 35 years or so. Michigan was the first jurisdiction in the United States to have handgun registration.

Yesterday, we let you know about an old law that we were able to get rid of in SB 219 (Ancient Time Bomb in Michigan Firearm Law Defused). Today, we would like to tell you about something else we were able to get into the bill.

Until yesterday, you could only apply for a Concealed Pistol License once per calendar year.  For most of us, this wasn't a big deal as we've never had a problem from our county clerk, however, it has been a big problem for some.

There's A Whole Lotta "Con Carry" Goin' On - Guide to Michigan's Constitutional Carry Legislation

* Please note that while Package #2 has seen movement, NOTHING HAS BEEN ENACTED into law yet. See this video on the legislative process. There is still much work to be done and MOC strongly recommends that people still apply for and renew their licenses, and that is very likely to continue even if some of this legislation is enacted.
