Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel has joined a group of Attorneys General in the fight for state local gun safety.
Nessel and 12 other Attorneys General are urging the Supreme Court to uphold a U.S. Court of Appeals ruling. It held that states and localities can impose certain types of firearm regulations when they are substantially related to an important government objective, such as the protection of their residents.
The decision dates back to a New York State case from 2013 that challenged regulations in New York City. Nessel and her colleagues say the Second Amendment’s right to bear arms does not prevent state and local governments from implementing common-sense gun safety regulations.
