Protesters, some armed, enter Michigan Capitol

It’s the second time in less than a month there’s been a large demonstration against restrictions to combat COVID-19 in Michigan.

Lansing — Protesters, some carrying firearms, took their demonstration against Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s stay-home order inside the Michigan Capitol on Thursday in a confrontational showdown with authorities.

Dozens of protesters gathered outside the House chamber and demanded to be allowed in as Michigan State Police troopers stood in a line. The protesters chanted, “Let us in.”

Sen. Dayna Polehanki, D-Livonia, posted a photo of people in the Senate gallery Thursday with firearms. She said some of her colleagues “who own bullet proof vests are wearing them.”

Outside the Capitol, 800 to 1,000 protesters participated in the American Patriot Rally throughout the day, according to Michigan State Police Lt. Darren Green. It was the second time in less than a month there’s been a large demonstration against restrictions to combat COVID-19.
