The Second Amendment is clear: ‘the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.’ The Michigan Constitution similarly guarantees this right for both self-defense and the defense of our state. My colleagues and I are reaffirming our commitment to our oaths and the liberties of the people of Michigan.”
House Resolution 55 highlights the importance of the right to keep and bear arms as protected in the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. The resolution affirms the House’s support for preserving the right to keep and bear arms and the other civil rights guaranteed in the Constitution.
