Charlotte, NC --(Ammoland.com)- Last Wednesday, the Washtenaw County Board of Commissioners voted 5-4 to pass a resolution urging the Michigan Legislature and Governor Rick Snyder (R) to repeal Michigan’s important “Stand Your Ground” law, which would erode your inherent right to self-defense.
Voting in support of this misguided resolution were county commissioners Felicia Bradbec (D-District 4), Ronnie Peterson (D-District 6), Andy LaBarre (D-District 7), Yousef Rabhi (D-District 8) and Conan Smith (D-District 9).
As previously reported, this resolution also calls on the State Legislature and Governor to burden responsible gun owners by strengthening Michigan’s already stringent laws to purchase firearms, expanding “gun-free zone” regulations and imposing limits on the sale of standard capacity magazines.
The NRA thanks the following county commissioners who stood up for your Second Amendment rights by voting against this resolution: Kent Martinez-Kratz (D-District 1), Dan Smith (R-District 2), Alicia Ping (R-District 3) and Rolland Sizemore Jr. (D-District 5).
