FYI House Bills 4490 and 4491 of 2007 have been introduced to repeal penalties for failing to obtain a safety inspection for a handgun after purchase and to eliminate pistol safety inspections all together. Sponsor of the bills is Joel Sheltrown. He has 10 other co-sponsors. I was unable to find out any specifics about the bills or whether the safety inspections would be replaced with something else. Might be worth looking into.
