Mandatory Storage Bill Proposed in Michigan

Friday, February 27, 2009

Senate Bill 268, introduced by State Senator Martha Scott (D-2), would undermine a citizen’s right to self-defense by imposing onerous storage requirements on Michigan gun owners, rendering firearms useless in self-defense situations. 

SB 268 would require households with children to store their guns in locked boxes with trigger locks installed.  A violation would be punishable as a misdemeanor offense if a juvenile gains access to the firearm. 

The bill has been assigned to the Senate Judiciary Committee but has not been scheduled for a hearing. 

Please contact the members of the Senate Judiciary Committee and let them know this bill is not only unnecessary, it is dangerous.  Contact information can be found below.
