This time around we will discuss Article 1, Section 6 in the Michigan Constitution. That 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 provision, similar to the 2nd Amendment of the United States Constitution is going to allow for the defense of oneself, their property and the State of Michigan, however, the Legislature’s police power will allow for some restrictions on gun ownership. But we’ll also discuss the restrictions on “arms” and what that means. Similarly, we discuss the right to bear arms while committing a felony (the Felony Firearm statute) and stun gun ownership, all in this podcast!
