The Michigan House today adopted a measure introduced by state Rep. Andrew Fink opposing federal gun control bills and protecting the Second Amendment in Michigan.
Fink maintains that the federal laws restricting or prohibiting the manufacture, ownership and use of firearms, firearm accessories or ammunition within Michigan exceed the powers granted to the federal government under the U.S. Constitution.
“This is about standing up for the civil rights of the people of Michigan,” Fink said. “The federal government should not, and frankly does not, have the authority to infringe on Second Amendment rights or any other constitutional amendment for that matter.”
House Resolution 55 expresses it is the duty of Michigan’s courts and law enforcement agencies to protect the rights of law-abiding citizens to keep and bear arms within the borders of the state.
Legislators invited first responders and members of the military from their communities to be their guests for the service. The ceremony included the ringing of a fire bell for those who died in the line of duty throughout Michigan in the past year.
