2011 House Bill 4247: Lower pistol length definition to 26 inches
Introduced by Rep. Douglas Geiss (D) on February 15, 2011
To “grandfather” the pistol registrations of individuals who registered a long gun less than 30 inches as a pistol. House Bills 4124 and 4125 would change the law defining a pistol as a firearm less than 30 inches in length, to make this less than 26 inches. Some rifles with folding stocks are less than 30 inches, and so under Michigan law technically are subject to the same purchase and other restrictions as pistols.   Official Text and Analysis.
Referred to the House Judiciary Committee on February 15, 2011
