It is expected that a series of bills aimed at altering gun laws will be approved by the Michigan Senate this week.
Following the shooting at Michigan State University, a comprehensive package of 11 bills was introduced. Notable features of this package include red flag laws, universal background checks, and mandatory safe storage regulations, per Fox2 News.
Assuming the bills are approved, all firearms, not just handguns, would require background checks before they are transferred or purchased.

Furthermore, firearm owners would be obligated to securely store their firearms out of reach of minors.
The package also encompasses red flag laws, which have been implemented in other states over the years.
In 2018, Florida passed a red flag law in response to the Parkland high school shooting, while Maine has a “yellow flag” law that mandates a medical professional’s approval before firearms can be confiscated.
Although the particulars of these laws differ from state to state, the fundamental principle remains constant: an individual, usually a family member, police officer, or medical professional, can seek a court order to confiscate someone’s firearms for a designated duration.

Uncle Ted, say it ain’t so!
Michigan, please get rid of these Democrats, they’re killing my home state. I want to move back when I retire, but at this rate, it will be as woke as Cali 🙁
Voting demoncrat does have consequences, will people ever learn? They don’t give a flying F about you, it’s all about control.
These “feel good laws” will do nothing to stop the violence in this country. I can’t afford around the clock security like these state rulers can.
The whole tragedy could’ve been prevented if the deranged perp had been prosecuted in 2019 for his original gun-related felony. Instead he was allowed to plead down to a misdemeanor/no jail time….SMDH
