ATF Rescinds Michigan CPL Exemption

U.S.A. –-( Last week, Michigan FFLs received a letter from the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF) notifying them that a Michigan CPL will no longer be exempt from the NICS check when purchasing a firearm. This applies specifically to FFL dealers, not to private party sales. There is also no impact on RI-10 purchase permits.

    Same thing happened here in Alabama last year. There were sheriff’s issuing carry permits to dudes with prison records and they were buying guns with no NICS check.

    Very annoying for the rest of us.

    I live in Michigan, so this affects me. One of the good parts of having a CCW is to not have to bother with the NICS check. I have been fingerprinted, had a background check run on me by the police, and had to pay the state of Michigan over 100$ for my rights, which is a bunch of crap, in my opinion. Now, with this latest rule change by the BATFE’s, it is apparent that it is the Fed’s trying to show their displeasure at the Marijuana law that was passed in our state by referendum in the last election.
    I have a FFL dealer who does the paperwork for my gun purchases from online sources, and who apologetically told me that he was having to raise his price from 20$ to 25$. Now he will also have to run a check on me. I may have to start buying from private sales, and avoid the whole mess.

    I usually buy from private sellers. I don’t trust the ATF at all. I just do the cash and a handshake route. It is also safer from Fed interference and possible rule “changes”. They can’t take what they don’t know about. Screw the Feds and their rules.
