Michigan like several states has a requirement to inform law enforcement your armed. I always do and don't have issue with it. If I'm pulled over I hand them my I'd and CPL, if they as what I'm carrying I say I have a 45 just to keep it simple. A year or so back I was pulled over and I informed that I was carrying and was ready to say I have a 45 but was thrown a curve when the trooper asked if I had the green inspection card from my permit to purchase. In Mi a CPL holder fills out his own and sends it into the sheriffs office, or we did, the law changed and only the state police get a copy from the seller. Also the little green inspection cards are not required as safety inspections were eliminated. So when the trooper asked for my card I looked at him funny, he smiled and said that that was OK he knew it wasn't required anymore but it was easier if I did have one because he could just get the serial number off it instead of taking my firearm back to his cruiser. He then said the new policy was to either use the card or do a on spot safety inspection running it through the computer. Now is this just a faux registration scheme? Not like there is much choice, I handed him my 45, it was in a pocket holster and he said not t clear it just took it back an ran it. Brought it back gave me a warning on my speed and said I could still get a green card at the sheriffs office, so legislature eliminates the old faux gun registration/safety inspections only to have troopers take it up on their own. The trooper never asked how many guns were in the car and the other 45, my 1911 was in the center console, he didn't ask and I didn't think to mention it or the 38 bug I had as a backup. Not paranoid just always have a glove box gun and a EDC with a bug depending on where in Mi. I am. Law only says I have to inform and I didn't lie anyway, is this a case of Mi State Police doing safety inspections or are they doing their own registration deal and are they doing this in your state? Or should I put away my tin foil hat and don't worry about it.
