Michigan Self Defense & Guns Require Safe Storage and Education

Self Defense & Guns are always a hot legal topic, and today is no different.  The recent tragic accidental self-inflicted shooting death of a 9 year-old Detroit boy has prompted the Wayne County Prosecutor's Office to charge the boy's father with a laundry list of offenses including murder, which could land him in prison for life. Based on information from public media reports, if the father had followed the law, the firearm would not have been in the house. First, the shotgun involved has been described as being "sawed-off".
