The Michigan Constitution Podcast

Tony Snyder is a licensed attorney in the State of Michigan who offers a bi-monthly podcast on the Michigan Constitution. Here you will learn about each Article and its respective Sections, what they mean, and case law that has addressed how those provision are implemented in the day-to-day lives of citizens of Michigan.


episode 17: Right to Bear Arms (Part 2)

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.
