Bills introduced days after the MSU shooting, fall into three categories: Requiring universal background checks for the sale of all firearms; establishing penalties for failing to safely store a gun when around a minor under the age of 18; and creating a process to implement extreme risk protection orders – otherwise known as red flag laws – in the state of Michigan.

As to whether red flag laws do make a conclusive impact on reducing firearm violence, that’s yet to be seen.

Dr. April Zeoli talks with MLive about these new policies and the data surrounding them.
