Next week, the Washtenaw County Board of Commissioners is planning to consider a misguided resolution calling upon the Michigan Legislature and Governor Rick Snyder (R) to repeal Michigan’s “Stand Your Ground” law, and to create additional regulations that would further restrict your Second Amendment rights and inherent right to self-defense. This resolution is scheduled to be considered at the Board’s next meeting on Wednesday, October 2, at 6:45 pm.
Please attend this important public hearing and respectfully tell the Board of Commissioners to defend – not undermine – your inherent right to self-defense and vote “NO” on this resolution. You will be allowed three minutes to make remarks.
Meeting Information:Date: Wednesday, October 2Time: 6:45 p.m.Address: Board Room of Administration Building 220 North Main Street in Ann Arbor
This resolution would also call upon the State Legislature and Governor to burden responsible gun owners by strengthening Michigan’s already stringent laws to purchase firearms, expanding “gun-free zone” regulations and imposing limits on the sale of standard capacity magazines.
It is crucial that you tell your county Commissioner at this public meeting or call and e-mail him/her TODAY to OPPOSE this resolution. Tell him/her to stand up for your Second Amendment and self-defense rights. Don’t forget to forward this alert to your family, friends, fellow gun owners, sportsmen and Second Amendment supporters in Washtenaw County and urge them to do the same.
