    (quoted from NRA Legislative Alert)

    We need to contact members of the House Judiciary Committee to urge them to support this legislation, as well as companion bills HB 5498 and HB 5499, ASAP!!! This link will give you access to contact information for these legislators: Michigan House of Representatives

    Oh YAY! I'm planning on getting my CHP/L when I get home though so this probably won't matter. I still support the idea completely!

    So this will eliminate the PP but still require registration? Will it require a FOID card (or equivelent) for private purchase, or sale ? Will this eliminate DPD illegally charging mandatory $10 notary fee ?

    Hi guys.

    I've been running this bill on a few other Michigan related sites already. The bill HB 5225 has a proposed amendment to eliminate registration and permit to purchase. I was at the committee meeting last week and it needs some support. The vote will be on 5/24/2012 at 10am. NRA ILA is actively lobbying for this bill with the amendment.

    I created an auto email system to send a pre-made message of support for the bill. So far we have gotten 95 more emails sent to the clerk of the committee (she handles the pro/anti comments to bills)

    Here's a link to the form emailer.

    Any questions click the link and my email is in the description at the bottom.

    Sent as well. Hoping this passes and the Stand your Ground restriction gets stomped in the dirt.

    I know a former MI resident who defends that law. He is not anti-gun but it is his contention that the law is needed to keep the "wrong kind of people", not just felons, from buying guns. Since his idea of the "wrong kind of people" is almost anyone who is not a white Protestant of German extraction (like himself), I have to wonder how the law is enforced in a way that satisfies him.

    I'm sure glad he's a former resident, Jim.

    Below is a reply I got from Jeff Irwin, FYI. Those of you in his district should give him a piece of your mind unless you want NICS for personal sales.

    ^ "Oh sure I'm for the 2nd!" - any politician trying to get in office

    How many times I've asked how much they support it. Scammers won't get my support, and if you don't know where they stand while bothering me telling me all about them then you already lost my vote.

    I want an unashamed supporter.

    At least he was honest with his reply, he's not a pro gun politician...he's a normal politician. When are they up for re-election?

    Bill status page here: http://www.legislature.mi.gov/(S(5m...g.aspx?page=getobject&objectname=2011-HB-5225

    No action since 5/24.

    I have no idea what "H-3" contains.

    "H-3" appears to be a third version of the bill by the House, but that is only a guess. It appears that they are on H-4 via the link provided.
