Does anyone know the status of the proposed bill to repeal the current pistol purchase permit procedures and replacing it with the regular NICS check system?

I assume you are refferring to HB4490?  If you are it has passed the House and is on its way to be voted on by the Senate.  This Bill is very important in my opinion.  Not only will they have to stop registering our hand guns but the state will be required to destroy the documentation on all handguns already registered.  I can't believe this Bill isn't getting more attention in this thread.

It's a sticky a few posts above this one.

Also:  Follow this link and bookmark it.  Just stick 4490 in the bill number and all will be revealed.  It's a great resource for MI Compiled Laws and legilation.

That's because this bill does not end handgun registration.
It's smoke and mirrors.

Doesn't end the requirement for purchase permits, either.

I wouldn't say its smoke and mirrors exactly..it is an improvement to the extent that it will relieve a lot of the issues with local municipalities screwing people over by charging for inspections, keeping weird hours, etc..it eliminates the illusion that safety has anything to do with it.

It doesn't end registration, though, by any stretch of the imagination. It changes it to a mail in registration.

There will probably be a couple of changes in the Senate bill, but nothing earth-shattering..just a couple of clarifications. It should pass easily.
