    Once the citizen has purchased their firearm, they have 10 days to take the gun to the local police department, have the sale recorded, and a new Safety Inspection Certificate issued in their name. Otherwise, they are considered in violation of the law and could be arrested on a misdemeanor gun violation.

    Federal laws also require a background check if you purchase a gun from a licensed dealer with a Federal Firearms License.

    Note that each and every legal gun buyer in Michigan, and particularly Detroit, must be approved by the local police at least twice each and every time they purchase a gun and undergo a background check by the federal government. ”

  3. I have some cousins that live in Kentucky. When they venture to Michigan, they take the long way via I69 to avoid I94 and Detroit. Longer but safer.

    Selective slaughter takes longer but it works still the same.

  8. As the police Captain stated, “It was a celebration of Life, you can see the candles and liquor bottles (pointing to the crime scene).
    It makes one wonder if the hit and run was deliberate act of a gang (it is Detroit). Some celebrants returned fire.
