Governor Snyder Vetoes Air Gun Bills

LANSING, MI (WLNS) – Governor Rick Snyder has vetoed bills that would have loosened Michigan’s licensing restrictions on air guns and limited local governments’ freedom to set their own regulations.

Snyder said Monday that only part of a package backed by the National Rifle Association was sent to him before the Republican-led Legislature adjourned its two-year session. He says enacting just four of seven bills would create contrasting definitions and legal inconsistencies.

The NRA says Michigan is one of four states classifying most pellet guns as firearms.
