MR. WILLIAMS

I’d like to address the notion that; more gun control actions such as, more thorough background checks need to take place. For the benefit of all people, here is the web address: “http://www.michigan.gov/msp/0,46...” that will bring up the State of Michigan’s Concealed Pistol Requirements that shows the great detail law makers went to, to make sure that the most methodical, meticulous, and comprehensive steps were taken in order to maintain the highest standards and requirements to be put in place in order that those applying for a Concealed Pistol License must be a law abiding exemplar citizen that will be required to volunteer their finger prints to be submitted through AFIS, Automated Fingerprint Identification System and must pass a Michigan State Police and FBI background checks and after all tests and checks have been completed successfully the Applicant still must complete a certified safety training course as well. After you read through all of the requirements an individual must successfully pass in order to receive their Concealed Pistol License, I think you may find that the mandatory requirements listed are very complete.
