Recall Initiative Promised for Michigan Legislators Who Vote for Gun Control

Feb 20, 2023

Lansing, MI – Today, Second Amendment advocacy group Great Lakes Gun Rights promised to work with local political activists and begin recalling anti-gun politicians who vote for gun control legislation being pushing through the Michigan legislature.

“Michigan Democrats are charging ahead with anti-gun proposals that would make California blush,” said Brenden Boudreau, Executive Director for Great Lakes Gun Rights. “We urge Michigan Democrats to drop their politically motivated gun control push and for Republicans to oppose all these bills. If they do not relent, we’re preparing to work with local activists and voters in districts across the state to recall any lawmaker who votes for these gun control bills.”  


Democrats in the legislature, supported by Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, have introduced universal background checks, Red Flag, and mandatory storage laws in the wake of the Michigan State shooting.

“Red Flag gun confiscation orders allow an old roommate, ex-spouse, ex-girlfriend, or ex-boyfriend to file for an order against someone with very little evidence, and strip someone of their rights without due process. The so-called ‘universal background checks’ bills are de facto universal gun registration and will make it illegal to loan a close relative or friend a shotgun for hunting. Finally, the storage laws disarm law-abiding Michiganders in their own homes and are probably already unconstitutional under the Heller decision,” said Boudreau.

Chapter 18 of the Michigan Election Law lays out the groundwork for a recall process to take place. According to the stated law, “All elective officers in the state, except judicial officers, are subject to recall by the voters of their districts.”

Recall elections would most likely take place in the summer.   

Great Lakes Gun Rights would receive assistance from National Association for Gun Rights Vice President Joe Neville who successfully recalled three Democrat State Senators in Colorado after the Colorado General Assembly enacted several gun control measures in 2013.

“Are Democrats willing to lose their majorities this summer pushing these egregious and unconstitutional gun control bills? I guess we will find out,” concluded Boudreau. 

Great Lakes Gun Rights is urging pro-gun Michiganders to call their legislators and demand they oppose all gun control efforts. Michiganders interested learning more can visit
