A number of Michigan municipalities have voted on resolutions that designate them as so-called "Second Amendment sanctuaries." The votes have come in reaction to an ongoing national conversation about gun control.

Today on Stateside, the trial of Kathie Klages has begun. The longtime coach for the Michigan State University women’s gymnastics team is accused of lying to police during an investigation into Larry Nassar. Plus, the national debate over new gun control measures has led to some Michigan municipalities to adopt “sanctuary county” resolutions for gun rights.
