We will continue our discussion regarding Article 1, Section 6 in the Michigan Constitution. This provision of the MI Constitution reads as follows:
“Every person has a right to keep and bear arms for the defense of himself and the state“
This time, however, we will discuss the idea of being a Felony In Possession of a Firearm and whether that runs afoul of the the Michigan Constitution. We will also throw into the mix the notion of self-defense when a Felon is prohibited from possessing a firearm.
