Michigan: Bill to Repeal State Ban on Short-Barreled Rifles and Shotguns Sent to Governor

Today, the Michigan Senate concurred with the House changes to Senate Bill 610 by a 36-2 vote.  This bill will now be sent to Governor Rick Snyder (R) for his expected signature.  SB 610, sponsored by state Senator Michael Green (R-31), will repeal Michigan’s ban on the private ownership of short-barreled rifles and shotguns.  Short-barreled rifles and shotguns are already strictly regulated under the National Firearms Act, requiring their buyers to undergo a background check, pay a $200 federal tax and register these firearms with the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.  

SB 610, which passed in the Michigan House of Representatives by a 103-6 vote last week, would conform Michigan law to federal law and align Michigan with a large majority of states that already allow their residents to possess these firearms.  This legislation is awaiting enrollment and presentation to Governor Snyder, where his signature would make it law.  Please politely contact Governor Snyder and respectfully urge him to sign this important reform for law-abiding gun owners into law.  Governor Snyder can be reached by telephone at (517) 373-3400 and online here.

If everyone knew all there is to know, they would not do half the things they do, including myself, therefore I must foregive them, including myself.
