Democrats at the state Capitol are calling for background checks on everyone who buys a firearm. That would include in-store purchases and person-to-person sales.
They say that would help ensure that people prone to violence won’t be able to legally get hold of a firearm.
State Rep. Tim Griemel, D-Auburn Hills, says the state should require checks for in-store and person-to-person gun sales.
“This is the best, most common-sense way to ensure that guns are not in the hands of those who are prone to violence,” he said.
Republicans are not on board.
