State Rep. Jim DeSana last week voted against an effort to put additional restrictions on lawful gun owners in Michigan.
Despite DeSana’s opposition, the House on Wednesday approved House Bills 4139 and 4144, which establish a one-size-fits-all government mandate that dictates how lawful gun owners store their firearms.

DeSana previously voted against legislation that requires universal background checks for all firearm transfers and establishes new licensing requirements for hunting rifles and shotguns.
