    Purchase Permits & CPL's no longer required at gun stores for handgun purchase.

    I saw a sign at Action Impact (8mile & Beech Daly) when I went to get my Ruger LCP last week, that said

    "Effective Dec 28th 2012, you will no longer need a Pistol Purchase Permit or CPL for purchases. All background checks are done instantly in-store".

    Which I thought was pretty cool. Not sure if this is everywhere, or just AI, but it sure makes it easier for some people to buy!

    It is possible that different cities would have a different law about it.

    It's a state law so preemption is in place.

    You need a permit for private sales, if you don't have a CPL, so it's a bit misleading.

    Yes, it was part of HB 5225.

    HB 5225 eliminated the need to obtain a purchase permit for firearms purchased from an FFL. Purchase permits are also now good for 30 days. The ten question pistol safety exam requirement has also been eliminated. Furthermore, purchasers can now apply for a purchase permit at any law enforcement agency rather than only where the applicant resides.

    bought mine on the 4th iirc... walked in the gun shop with cash and walked out with pistol in hand 10 minutes later. background check done on site and you simply have to take two registeration papers to the local PD within so few days.

    It should be only 1 part returned to local PD. The MSP copy.

    Can someone post a cite / link to the law so hopefully others can read it? Thanks in advance from those who have not taken their GoogleFU classes yet.

    Hello Free-in-Az ~

    I cannot give you a proper cite but can tell you what I learned today.

    After reading this thread last night I called the Missaukee County Sheriff's office this morning and spoke to a sheriff's deputy.

    Good news to follow:

    Individuals without a CPL no longer need to request "permission" from your County Sheriff to purchase a pistol.

    You no longer need to pass a written "safety test" to purchase a pistol.

    To purchase a pistol from a FFL dealer, go there, pick out what suits you and the dealer will run your info through the FBI background check, which only takes a few minutes.

    Following that you pay for your pistol and the dealer will give you some important paperwork. From there you take the paperwork to your county sheriff's office, either in person or you can simply mail it in. There's no longer a need for a notary either. All of this is a "win" for freedom/liberty's sake for the citizenry of Michigan.

    Hope this is of help to you and others.

    Take care now.

    Respectfully,
    Billy

    This only applies to FFL sales. If you purchase from a private party you still need a pistol purchase permit. However, now you can get them from any LEO organization. You are no longer required to get them from "your" local cop shop.

    Purchase Permits & CPL's no longer required at gun stores for handgun purchase.

    There's a fix coming to this law. Something about FFL #2 and 7 dealers need to get a PP for any pistol they receive into their inventory because how 5225 was written? (Oops)

    HB 5225 isn't all the pistol legislation. There's also SB 760, 761, and 762 which dealt with "Michigan pistols."

    A summary of all firearms legislation in Michigan in 2012 can be found in the Michigan Open Carry Jan 2013 newsletter available online.
