A bipartisan group of state representatives, led by co-chairs Reps. Jim Runestad, Michele Hoitenga and Scott Dianda today announced the formation of a new Second Amendment Caucus.
The caucus is comprised of 42 members of the Michigan House of Representatives who are committed to defending and advancing the right to bear arms.
“It’s critically important that we remain vigilant about the liberties our Founding Fathers established in the U.S. Constitution, especially the right to keep and bear arms,” said Hoitenga, R-Manton.
Runestad, R-White Lake, said standing up for the Second Amendment is more important than ever.
“I’m confident this group will work together to create meaningful pro-gun reforms that protect Michigan’s law-abiding gun owners from government overreach and other infringements on their Second Amendment rights,” Runestad said.
“We need to take a stand against looming challenges and ensure that all law-abiding citizens continue to have the right to protect themselves,” said Dianda, D-Calumet. “I’m looking forward to taking an active role in the caucus as we share ideas about how best to stand strong in support of the Second Amendment.”
