WILX.com is reporting that Senator Rick Jones of Grand Ledge has an idea to help tighten up regulations regarding the rental of firearms in Michigan.

The bill is introduced after a murder-suicide last month in a Lansing Township store. The weapon used by the shooter was rented from a local gun retailer's range, but never returned. The murder victim had a personal protection order against the shooter.

The bill introduced by Jones would require one of three criteria to be met: the renter holds a Concealed Pistol License, a permit to purchase a handgun, or to pass a National Instant Criminal Background Check. Additionally, dealers would have to notify law enforcement agency if a renter fails the background check. And, somebody with a suspended Concealed Pistol License would have to surrender their card to their county clerk.
