Demonstrators in Michigan were back at it on Thursday in an attempt to force Governor Gretchen Whitmer to end the state-of-emergency order currently in place.

Protesters poured into the capitol building, many unmasked, others carrying rifles as they had a standoff with police. “Let us in,” the demonstrators shouted as they entered the building. Democratic state Sen. Dayna Polehanki tweeted a photo of the protest from her office inside the capitol building on Thursday and wrote, “Directly above me, men with rifles yelling at us Some of my colleagues who own bulletproof vests are wearing them. I have never appreciated our Sergeants-at-Arms more than today.”
