Michigan House Repeals Handgun Registration

The Michigan House of Representatives has voted to repeal Michigan's handgun permit and registration law. The vote was 74-36, with all Republicans in favor. This is less than other recent pro-gun bills since 2000, which usually get about 100 votes in the state house. The bill must still be passed by the state senate.

This bill is long past due. Only six states require any form of gun registration. Michigan, California, Hawaii, and New York register handguns, and New Jersey and Connecticut register "assault weapons". The other five are all considerably more liberal than Michigan.
