Firearms Law

Protecting Your Second Amendment Rights

The Second Amendment to the United States Constitution states that, “the right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed.” Additionally, the State of Michigan’s Constitution in Article 1, Section 6 states “Every person has a right to keep and bear arms for the defense of himself and the state.” However, these constitutional rights are not always observed or honored by local authorities throughout the state, even in Southeast Michigan.
