    This was this year. It's just kind of a run down. :)

    I wish it was this year!

    I wish we could just get a signature on Castle Doctrine.

    Is anybody working to repeal the whole handgun registration scheme in MI? Or is it so engrained for several generations that no one can imagine life without it? Not criticizing; just asking.

    Handgun registration

    I'm not aware of anyone trying to get rid of the registration system, but I'd definitely be in favor of it, and would support it. I think it's pretty well ingrained with our LEO's though, and would probably face a long uphill battle.


    So does anyone know what is going on with the Castle Doctrine bills? She received them on the 6th, and only has 2 weeks (which expires today right?) to either sign or veto them, or they become law. I haven't heard anything about them at all.

    Unfortunately, there's not a lot of support for, and a lot of opposition to, removing the registration. Not impossible to do, but difficult.

    This summary is incorrect. The FIRST renewal will be for a term BETWEEN 4 and 5 years, never exceeding a duration of 5 years. Subsequent renewals will run exactly 5 years (DoB to DoB).
