LANSING, Mich., Feb. 14, 2024 — Yesterday marked the one-year anniversary of the Michigan State University campus shooting. On that day one year ago, three students — Arielle Anderson, Alexandria Verner and Brian Fraser — lost their lives, and five others were injured. Michigan Democrats continue to honor those lost through action — driving change for the protection of Michiganders. Shortly after this unforgettable day, legislation to transform Michigan gun laws were passed and are now in effect. The MFSVP Caucus issued the following statement following the anniversary:

“Our hearts go out to those impacted — students, teachers, families, community members, those who continue to navigate through grief, those who seek peace in all this and to all Michiganders. We, here, stand with you; we see and feel your pain and your call to action. We are committed to a safer Michigan future; the one that many of you continue to speak up about. Your voices are heard, and we stand with you. The Michigan Firearm Safety and Violence Prevention Caucus will continue to dedicate itself to finding solutions to hard problems that face our state and nation.”
