On December 1, applications for gun licenses in Michigan transferred from gun boards established in each county to the local clerk in that county.

In Calhoun County, Clerk Anne Norlander tells The Richard Piet Show it's been a challenge adapting to change. Patti Stanton oversees the applications process in the county, and said they are still adapting to the new system. Michigan State Police still perform background checks on individuals who submit applications, but the gun boards are no longer processing the applications.

It's hoped the change will speed up the process. Hear their comments by clicking the player below.
