Bill would exempt Michigan-made firearms from federal regulations

Lead in text: 
Similar legislation was introduced in the Michigan Senate in 2009, but never made it out of committee.
LANSING, MI - Republican Senators introduced a bill to prohibit federal regulation of Michigan-made firearms that stay within the state. The move came on the same day President Barack Obama asked Congress to reinstate bans on military-style assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines and to pass universal background checks for gun purchases.
