The full Minnesota House may soon vote on a bill expanding the right to use firearms to protect yourself. Often called a Stand Your Ground law, HF 238 would legalize the use of deadly force if a person feels their life is threatened, or in the defense of a crime in one's home.

The bill had a hearing earlier this month in the House Public Safety Committee and was re-introduced Tuesday with no testimony. The bill passed on a 9-6 vote.

The Republican-led Michigan Senate has voted to repeal a law that makes it a misdemeanor if gun sellers don’t keep a registry of firearm purchases.

The provision is included in legislation approved 27-10 Thursday and send to the House. The bill would largely make what supporters say are technical changes to a law that eliminated gun boards for issuing concealed handgun licenses.

Democrats opposed the legislation, calling the elimination of criminal penalties for not keeping gun records “unpalatable.” The 1931 law requires gun businesses to keep a registry of each buyer’s name, age, occupation and residence along with information about firearms purchased.

Switchblade knives would be legal in Michigan under legislation approved unanimously by the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday.

Jones said that it's often said old black and white films featuring gangs and knives were the reason knives like switchblades were outlawed in the first place.

Tim Fitzgerald, a legislative Liaison for the Michigan State Police, said right now only about half of the state's local prosecutors are charging for switchblades. The current ban "is something that we have absolutely no problem with the repeal of,"

Governor Terry McAuliffe is hoping to restore Virginia’s One-Handgun-a-Month law, saying it will “counter Virginia’s shameful reputation as the gun-running capital of the East Coast.” “Today I have sent down an amendment to a bill on my desk which will restore Virginia’s One-Handgun-a-Month law. The law, enacted in 1993 by then-Governor L. Douglas Wilder, was repealed by the Republican-controlled House and Senate in 2012 and signed by Governor Bob McDonnell,” McAuliffe said in a prepared statement. “The amendment will once again make it illegal to purchase more than one handgun in a 30-day period by Virginia residents and out-of-state purchasers.”
