Michigan Cities Call For Repeal Of Stand-Your-Ground

Ann Arbor, Michigan by Alan Piracha
Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti are two cities in Michigan that passed resolutions last month asking their state to repeal stand-your-ground laws.  The Michigan Self Defense Act of 2006 and the Firearms and Ammunition Act of 1990 are the two pieces of legislation that the municipalities want axed.

Both cities are politically vocal. Ann Arbor, home to the University of Michigan, gained a reputation during the 1960’s and 70’s as a center for civil rights, anti-Vietnam. and student movements.

The Ypsilanti Courier reports that the resolution cites gun violence as one of the leading causes of death of African-Americans, Latinos and American Indians.  It seeks improved background checks, strengthened gun-free zones and limits on the sale high-capacity magazines.

What other cities have started resolutions? Will other cities follow?
