WSGW OnLine Poll: Gun Reforms in Michigan (results)
(February 1 – 8)
In her recent State of the State address, Governor Whitmer outlined policy ideas regarding firearms.
The governor said lawmakers should enact universal background check requirements for people who want to buy firearms, also create a safe storage standard for guns at home, plus pass “extreme risk” protection orders (also knows as red flag laws) to allow guns to be taken from people deemed at risk to themselves and others.
Governor Whitmer said, “And I want to be very clear – I’m not talking about law-abiding citizens. Hunters and responsible gun owners from both sides of the aisle know that we need to get these common sense gun safety proposals across the finish line.”
