Michigan Republicans Pushing Emergency Gun Ban

Oct 16, 2020

There’s very little time to explain.

We’re receiving breaking news that lawmakers in Michigan are considering an “emergency” gun ban at the State Capitol.

And this time it’s not coming from the Democrats. It’s coming from Republican leadership in Lansing.

They’re borrowing a page from the Obama-Biden Playbook of “never letting a crisis go to waste” to punish law-abiding gun owners for the actions of terrorists by erecting yet another “Gun-Free” zone.

Of course, you and I both know that banning guns anywhere makes everyone LESS safe.

Take for example what happened last week outside the Colorado State capitol — where guns are banned and carry outside is regulated — a father was shot and killed by an armed thug during a peaceful protest.

Is that the vision of legislative leadership in Lansing?

Please take a moment to call the following lawmakers and urge them NOT to ban guns in the State Capitol, outside the capitol, or anywhere period.

*** House Speaker Lee Chatfield (517) 373-2629

*** Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey (517) 373-5932

Remind them that with everything hanging in the balance this November, now is the absolute worst time to poke gun owners in the eye by pushing gun control.

After all, our politicians won’t respect our Constitutional rights at on the State Capitol grounds, how can we expect them to support the Second Amendment with pro-gun policy?

So call now.

Or send them a pre-filled email by clicking here.

Or copy and paste the message below to SenMShirkey@senate.michigan.gov and LeeChatfield@house.mi.gov.

Speaker Chatfield and Majority Leader Shirkey,

It’s come to my attention that you’re considering banning guns at the State Capitol. I’m writing to you to express my strong opposition to any measure that would ban guns anywhere on Capitol Grounds. With only days to go before the most important election in a generation, now is not the time for Republicans to betray law-abiding Second Amendment supporters by imposing yet another unconstitutional gun ban. Great Lakes Gun Rights will keep me informed of your actions.


Thank you for taking quick action.
