Now that three gun reform laws have seen success in the Michigan legislature, Democrats in Lansing are laying out their next gun control priorities.

Michigan’s Democratic Firearm Safety and Violence Prevention caucus is setting its sights on the next gun control-related laws they hope to pursue while still in the majority in Lansing.

Pittsfield Township State Representative Felicia Brabec is chair of the Firearm Safety caucus. She says their next pressing issues include laws about community violence intervention, governance on where guns are allowed, liability of firearm manufacturers and closing the so-called partner loophole law:

“It used to be referred to as the boyfriend loophole so that folks who are in relationships but not married and there’s been domestic violence can still get access to guns”

She doesn’t see full caucus support for assault weapons ban at this point.
