The Michigan Capitol Commission formed a committee to decide whether or not to allow guns in the Michigan Capitol building. They have yet to act, so it’s on us to continue to push for safe, common sense regulations that prohibit dangerous weapons in our Capitol building. We urge EVERYONE to sign and SHARE the petition below. With your help, we can demand what the majority of Michigan residents believe is right- firearms have no place in our Capitol!

Let’s make our voices heard and put an end to this dangerous practice!
