    Registering a hand gun

    I live in Genesee county in the state of Michigan. I was told that if you want to register a hand gun in your name that is currently registered in the name of a deceased person, all you need is a death certificate. Is this true.

    I dunno...Depends upon whether you're the one who killed him, I guess.

    Why not ask a law-enforcement officer or, even better, an attorney?
    Or, you could access your state's laws on the subject, fully indexed, right on your state's very own website. (Use Google to find it.)

    Well, somebody's gotta be the resident wise-a** around here.

    I just thought of some further information which might be useful to the OP:
    If the pistol was left to you as a bequest, a copy of the will (or other bequest paperwork) should be proof of legal possession and ownership.
    A bequest certainly satisfies federal law, so it might satisfy Michigan law too.

    Can't help you, my friend. Indiana has not yet become a socialist republic. We have no such thing as firearms "registration", Gott sei dank.

    I'd move someplace I don't have to register a gun.

    not sure how this gets defined. Bequest can be a gift or not 5. In Michigan, what is a License to Purchase and is one needed in every case where a pistol is acquired?

    MCL 28.422 A License to Purchase is a license required prior to acquisition of a pistol by purchase or gift. The important part of the License to Purchase is the affidavit signed by the purchaser swearing to their own qualifications. A License to Purchase is not needed for anyone with a valid Michigan Concealed Pistol License, for firearms dealers purchasing from wholesalers, or for relics, curios, antiques, etc., not made for modern ammunition. Someone with a valid Michigan Concealed Pistol License must, however, complete a Pistol Sales Record when purchasing or acquiring a pistol.
