GRAND LEDGE — Although no major issues have happened in the city of Grand Ledge, the city’s police department continues to enforce the state laws about gun ownership and control. The police chief together with the police officers patrol the city to make sure every resident is abiding to the laws when they are dealing with drugs. When citizens want to buy guns, background checks are conducted at the department building as well. “The state laws are the state laws, there’s nothing special about firearms laws — they’ve been on the works for years, they’ve changed,” said Police Chief Martin Underhill.

The state laws are the local laws, Underhill said, and the police does its job to keep the citizens safe and out of harm from an object that is a lethal weapon — a gun.
