MCRGO Legal Update

Following limited opposition committee testimony and a series of party-line votes in the House and Senate, the Michigan Legislature has adopted its first round of gun control legislation. This includes firearms storage mandates, Red Flag orders, and long gun background checks. We thank all of you who contacted your state legislators in opposition to these bills over the past three months.

Due to recent federal court decisions including last June’s United States Supreme Court opinion in New York State Rifle & Pistol Association, Inc. v. Bruen, the MCRGO Foundation believes it has a strong chance of prevailing in litigation against these new gun control measures.

The MCRGO Foundation is engaged in legal strategy discussions with attorneys from allied firearms organizations to discuss the best path forward to countering attacks in Michigan on your self-defense rights. This includes attorneys from other states who are in the process of litigating similar gun control measures. At the same time, MCRGO continues to assist in the Wade vs. University of Michigan lawsuit.

We have favorable odds of prevailing in court. However, litigation is expensive. Unlike Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel who can use your tax dollars to defend these new laws, the MCRGO Foundation depends primarily on voluntary donations from individual gun owners.

You can assist with the upcoming lawsuits in making a contribution to the MCRGO Civil Rights Legal Defense Fund by going to the Contribute Online page at or mailing a check or money order to MCRGO; PO Box 2294; Grand Rapids, MI 49501. The MCRGO Foundation is a qualified 501 (c) (3) and your contribution may be tax deductible. Any amount helps. Thank you very much for your role in our continued fight against those who seek to disarm responsible gun owners.
