LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Michigan Democrats are poised to bring an 11-bill package to the Legislature that would implement safe storage laws, universal background checks and extreme risk protection orders, also known as red flag laws. A mass shooting on the Michigan State University campus less than a month ago has pushed Democrats to act fast on legislation. Key Democratic leaders say this is just the start to gun reform in the state. Republicans say current gun laws need to be better enforced, not altered.
