The legislation in both the House and the Senate would mandate universal background checks for all guns, require that gun owners safely store firearms that could be accessed by minors, and permit a court to order the temporary removal of firearms from someone who may be a danger to themselves or others.
Two former Republican members of Congress have thrown their support behind the gun safety bills introduced by Senate Democrats that are moving through the state Legislature—and they’re encouraging their colleagues to do the same, or else risk more Michigan lives to senseless gun violence.
Michiganders have seen thousands of new jobs, progress on a lengthy list of road repairs, lower costs for families pinched by inflation, and continued efforts to make the state a safer place to live, work and learn.
Scammers have been selling unlicensed Michigan State University merchandise, and claiming that the proceeds will go toward the Spartan Strong Fund, which supports those most critically impacted by the deadly on-campus shooting last week.
Students and activists have since made it clear that with Democrats now in charge of both chambers of the Michigan Legislature, they expect swift action to clamp down on gun laws in the fallout of the shooting.
