Changes in self defense rules move forward in Michigan

Gun control advocates failed earlier this year to stop a Florida law allowing people to use deadly force to defend themselves without fear of prosecution from being signed by Gov. Jeb Bush.

They don't want to let it happen again.

National and local groups that seek tighter restrictions on guns are taking early aim against similar legislation introduced this month in Michigan. The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence and the Million Mom March are sending out press releases criticizing the legislation and are calling lawmakers in an attempt to keep the bills from getting out of the House Judiciary Committee. . . . .

Just a clarification note for this article: Florida was not the first state to have the so-called castle rule that do not require people retreat before then act in self-defense.

Thanks to Al Lowe for sending me this.
