Whitmer at Michigan Capitol rally promises to sign gun safety bills
Hundreds of people rallied at the state Capitol Wednesday to demand tougher gun laws.
Whitmer said she’s ready to sign a first round of new gun laws that includes universal background checks, safe storage requirements, and red-flag laws that would allow judges to order guns confiscated from people deemed a danger to themselves or others.
“Every person has the right and the freedom — the right of freedom to feel safe in their place of worship, in their place of education, in their neighborhood, in their workplace, in their community,” she said.
The Michigan Legislature’s Democratic leaders promised to get bills to Whitmer’s desk in short order. And Attorney General Dana Nessel said she will defend the laws in court if they are challenged.
