2024 Ballot Initiative Lobbying for Stricter Michigan Gun Laws
Gun violence is a serious issue not only here in Michigan, but all across the United States and it doesn't seem to be getting any better.
Every day when I come into the radio station to do my morning show, there's at least a half dozen stories involving guns or someone being killed or injured by gun violence.
I personally hate it with a passion, all this gun violence we not only read about in the newspaper, but also watch every night on the local and national news.
We need to see gun violence end. Something has to be done about it. It's like we're living in the wild wild west with no end in sight.
There is a group stepping up to the plate by lobbying for strict gun laws here in Michigan.
According to mlive.com:
End Gun Violence Michigan, a group that formed earlier this year to demand changes to Michigan's gun safety laws, made a last-ditch effort to appeal to lawmakers in lansing at a press conference near the Capitol Wednesday, April 13, where organizers pleaded for "sensible reforms" to the state's gun laws.
There are many who feel the same about gun violence and believe me when I tell you this, they're all quite angry that nothing is being done.
Here's what one person had to say courtesy of mlive.com:
"Enough is enough-we will not sit idly by as they (our legislators) sign our death warrants," said group organizer Zoey Rector-Brooks, 19. "Today we ask our elected officials and people who are tasked with representing us, what are you doing to save our lives?
Think about this too, who in their right mind would want to have children these days when there's so much gun violence out there.
Every single day, there's another story about gun violence somewhere in the United States, including here in Michigan. And let's face it, there are a lot of people that shouldn't be anywhere near a gun.
