In response to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, Governor Gretchen Whitmer issued Executive Order 2020-42 to order all nonessential businesses and activities to cease. Though her order exempts “critical infrastructure,” she purposefully references an outdated list of such industries rather than the most current federal guidelines that designate firearm and ammunition retailers as critical. This deliberate action is an attempt to shut down gun stores in order to deny citizens access to their Second Amendment rights. Executive Order 2020-42 still includes a requirement to suspend activities that are not “necessary to sustain or protect life.” It is clear that your Second Amendment rights are necessary to sustain or protect the life of you and your family. During this time of uncertainty, it is critical that law-abiding citizens remain able to access their Second Amendment right to self-defense.
