2011 House Bill 4124: Lower pistol length definition to 26 inches
  1. Introduced by Rep. Douglas Geiss (D) on January 20, 2011, to change the law defining a pistol as a firearm less than 30 inches in length, to make this less than 26 inches. Some rifles with folding stocks are less than 30 inches, and so under Michigan law technically are subject to the same purchase and other restrictions as pistols.
    • Referred to the House Judiciary Committee on January 20, 2011.
