MICHIGAN, Feb. 12, 2024 ~ A slew of new Michigan gun safety laws are set to take effect Tuesday, Feb. 13 that aim to restrict access to firearms for certain individuals and to regulate safe gun ownership.

Nearly one year ago, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer signed into law new requirements for gun storage to prevent children from accessing them, red flag court orders to remove guns from the hands of potentially dangerous individuals, and universal background checks for all new gun purchases. The new laws will take effect on the one-year mark of the Michigan State University shooting that saw three students killed.


Feb. 12, 2024 ~ Tomorrow will mark the one-year anniversary of the shooting on the campus of Michigan State University. Detroit Free Press reporter Dave Boucher talks with Guy Gordon, Lloyd Jackson, and Jamie Edmonds about how few employees and students have taken the safety training offered by the school.
