Anti-federal regulation gun bill proposed in Mich.

AP Wire • Jul 21, 2015 at 12:05 PM

Thirteen Republican senators introduced the proposed Michigan Firearms Freedom Act on Thursday. The bill's introduction came on same week that President Barack Obama laid out his extensive gun proposal, which includes reinstating the military-style assault weapon ban.

Progress Michigan said the bill was "copy and pasted from fringe Missouri legislation" and asked lawmakers to "stop introducing legislation written by radical out-of-state special interest groups."

The bill's primary sponsor is Republican Rep. Phil Parlov of St. Clair County. He introduced the same bill in 2009, but it stalled in committee under the Democratic-controlled House.
