Lawmakers in Lansing are working to repeal a law that makes it a misdemeanor if gun sellers don’t keep a registry of firearm purchases.
The Senate passed the bill last week which, supporters say, are technical changes to a law that eliminated gun boards for issuing concealed handgun licenses.
The 1931 law requires gun businesses to keep a registry of each buyer’s name, age, occupation and residence along with information about firearms purchased.
The bill also would let police officers carry concealed pistols in gun-free zones. That exemption already applies for retired officers and others.
