Michigan Bill To Require Background Check On Gun Rentals
You can rent a gun? I had no idea you could just rent a gun which, of course, means I had no idea you could rent a gun without a background check here in Michigan. I have to admit that this is certainly an issue that needs to be addressed during times like these.
According to a story on WOOD TV 8, a guy lost ownership of his gun due to a court order then went to a pawn shop to buy another gun but the sale was stopped by a background check. So then he went to a shooting range where he was able to rent a gun and was able to walk out with it. He then used the gun to kill his ex-girlfriend and then himself. So the next step would be to have background checks a shooting ranges. Unfortunately, they do not have the authority to facilitate the process hence the bill being proposed.
