Yesterday, (April 13) I signed bills into law that will reduce gun violence and save lives.
These commonsense laws will establish universal background checks for all firearm purchases and enact safe storage requirements.
These long-overdue steps, supported by a majority of Michiganders, will save lives by keeping guns out of the hands of criminals, domestics abusers, and children in the home.
We are taking action to keep our kids safe at home, in school, and in their neighborhoods.
We’re preventing accidents by keeping guns safely locked away from children.
We’re helping law enforcement do their jobs, get home safe at the end of the day, and stop violent crime.
We’re keeping guns away from domestic abusers, criminals, and people that want to cause harm to others or themselves.
Our hearts still ache for those we lost. Gun violence is the leading cause of death for kids and teens in this country—more than car crashes and cancer.
From 2019 to 2021, gun deaths among children went up by 50%. That’s unacceptable. We do not have to live like this.
Today, we took action to save lives.
I want to thank my legislative partners and the brave Michiganders including so many students and parents who continue to fight for change every day.
Thank you for staying in this fight with us. Let’s keep working together to take commonsense action on gun violence.
