Stateside: Thursday, August 18, 2022

Today, two state lawmakers, Reps. Mark Tisdel (R-Rochester Hills) and Jim Ellison (D-Royal Oak) stopped by to talk about the bill they have introduced that would create a tax incentive for securely storing guns in the home. The bill would also allow for safe storage to be used as a defense in court if the gun is used in a crime by another person.

After that, we traveled to Detroit and talked to Scott Hocking, a Detroit-based artist who is famous for his site specific sculptures, who toured us through his home-studio and some of the sites at which he has worked.
