Statement from House Democratic Leader Tim Greimel on House Resolution 18, which turns the debate on firearm regulation into political theater

Wednesday, January 30, 2013

“House Resolution 18 is an unnecessary bit of political theater. Obviously, no law that is unconstitutional shall be enforced. However, it is the business of the Supreme Court, not the Legislature, to determine the constitutionality of legislation. In introducing this proposal, Rep. Mike Shirkey was only trying to score political points with the gun lobby and grab headlines. I invite Rep. Shirkey to lay theatrics aside and join us so we can have a substantive discussion on firearms regulations that work for all Michiganders.”
