    Detroit News article on SB59 quoting MOC

    http://www.detroitnews.com/article/2...xt|FRONTPAGE|p

    "People will be looking to protect themselves because all of these mass shootings happen in pistol-free zones," said Phillip Hofmeister, president of Michigan Open Carry Inc.

    Hofmeister said Snyder needs his group's support to win re-election in 2014 after signing controversial right-to-work legislation that has made him a political target of labor unions.

    "We certainly feel that he's lost some of that support with the veto," Hofmeister said.
    I think it may be more then some support.
    "God created man, Sam Colt made them equal."

    We'll have to see who tries to run against him. If it's someone who is a bigger anti than Snyder I'll vote him back in just to get the lesser of the two evils.

    ...If the state converts a right into a privelege, the citizen can ignore the license and fee and engage in the right... with impunity.

    Where rights secured by the Constitution are involved, there can be no legislation which would abrogate them.

    I'm glad Snyder vetoed the OC-criminalizing SB 59. But he won't get my vote if there's a better candidate, because he is an anti-gunner.

    Schuette may run in primary.

    It has become clear to me that SB59 was an attempt to circumvent state preemption. Wasn't it the Guv who wanted the conceal only provision in it? or am I mistaken. To me , its absurd to allow concealed arms into schools so the only reason for being able to ban OC was to get around preemption. I am also glad it was vetoed only for that reason.

    People may have disagreed with TheQ's stance (which was NOT only his... as the board concurred) but you can't refute that he's made contacts and been very active in lobbying for 2A rights. I would of course, continue to stand behind him as our leader and know he will be doing a good job at things.

    Don't think I ever stated my stance on SB 59 after it prohibited OC. I don't think I ever will either. Those close to me know MY stance/thoughts.

    Anything I post may be my opinion and not the law... you are responsible to do your own verification.

    Blackstone (1753-1765) maintains that "the law holds that it is better that ten guilty persons escape than that one innocent suffer."
