Michigan residents on Thursday protested at the state capital, including some who entered the capital building as the state legislature debated a measure to extend Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s restrictions related to the coronavirus.  

State lawmakers are expected to vote on the 28-day extension of the state of emergency before it expires at midnight. Residents eager to leave their homes to return to work, shop, enjoy the outdoors and other everyday activities have protested several times since the restrictions were imposed several weeks ago by the Democrat governor. 

Protestors in the rain on Thursday waved American flags and chanted “Let us in,” and “This is the people’s house,” according to an NBC affiliate in Detroit. Some of the protestors brought their guns, which is legal with an open-carry permit.
