Rep. Slotkin plans to introduce gun reform bills following mass shooting at MSU
Representative Elissa Slotkin says she’s planning to introduce legislation that would restrict people convicted of any gun related offense from legally purchasing any type of firearm
Hundreds of people tuned in to a virtual town hall Wednesday evening to hear what Representative Slotkin plans to do to strengthen the country’s gun laws.
The gunman responsible for last week's mass shooting at Michigan State University was able to buy multiple firearms despite pleading guilty to a misdemeanor gun charge in 2019.
Slotkin says she’s working on legislation to impose a waiting period on any person charged with a gun related offense.
“You are prohibited from buying guns through a background check for x number of years and that’s what my team in Washington is looking at right specifically tied to the MSU experience.”
Under federal law, people convicted of a felony or a domestic violence misdemeanor are banned from purchasing a firearm.
