Michigan loves guns.
Anytime I talk about guns now, I will open with the full version of America’s Second Amendment. Here it is again . . .
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed. — congress.gov
I hope reading that did not take up your whole day. The way so many talk about it you’d think it was a mile long and full of so much legalese that only Perry Mason could figure it out.
It's not rocket science.
The founders of America wanted “the people” to have “Arms” to prevent tyranny, clearly, but they did not intend them for just anyone with a pulse. In fact, there is very little clarity as to any individual rights whatsoever!
This being said, and what should be obvious to anyone who has survived the now ONE HUNDRED mass shootings in America, we need to start focusing on the “well regulated” part of this ancient text now tearing our “advanced civilization” apart.
Michigan is about to be the leader in what “well regulated” looks like.
Thanks to Donald J. Trump for pushing personal revenge candidates over anyone of any use The People, Michigan now has a completely blue government.
Our Governor is blue.
Our Legislature is blue.
Our Supreme Court is blue.
After 40 years of GOP-induced brain drain and heartless economic and social policies that just made it all worse, Michigan is now in rehab for our addiction to cynical and greedy GOP politicians.
The Dems have been waiting for decades to pounce and now they are. With zero fucks given and no apologies, they are turning public safety up to eleven. They are now in the process of ramming through at least ELEVEN count them ELEVEN new gun laws. Probably more, once The People get a taste of what the freedom to go to Walmart without getting shot at feels like. Probably more after The People know they can go to work and no longer have to worry about their kids getting blown away at school by some incel that slipped through the cracks of our broken society.
