    Michigan's Scorecard

    Saw Arizona was proud of their score of 0 for the Brady Campaign scorecard so I figured us Michiganians should see what we got.

    http://www.bradycampaign.org/stategunlaws/scorecard/MI

    25 isn't bad but I think we can get it lower with the new republican control. Somehow Illinois only got a 35 which makes no sense to me but what do I know? In one of the categories I think we should have gotten 10 points instead of 0. They said that we don't require background checks on handgun sales (including gun shows) even though we really do with the permit to purchase and CPL holders purchases of handguns. Oh well leave it to the Brady Campaign to mess that up.

    - Shuttleworth vs City of Birmingham, Alabama 317 US 262

    Where rights secured by the Constitution are involved, there can be no legislation which would abrogate them.
    - Miranda vs Arizona 384 US 436

    Makes me want to move to Arizona.

    Can't do much worse (or better) than 0 from the Brady Bunch. Arizona must be doing something right.

    Don't forget about Utah who also received a 0.

    The way I see it their "best" state is Kalifornia with a score of 80/100. So basically the brady campaigns best state only gets a B-.

    Which tells you their real agenda is to totally outlaw guns, despite their rhetoric of "we just want sensible control".

    The ultimate goal of the newly formed political action committee Start our State is to split Pima County off into what would become the nation's 51st state, tentatively dubbed Baja Arizona.

    It would be so wonderful if the folks who argue in favor of "sensible", "reasonable", and "appropriate", restrictions on the right to bear arms in reference to OC so as not to "offend" anyone would realize they are offering the very same anti gun arguments the Brady Bunch invented......

    Sorry guys.... just venting....
    Gun control isn't about the gun at all.... for those who want gun control it is all about their own fragile egos, their own lack of self esteem, their own inner fears, and most importantly... their own desire to dominate others. And an openly carried gun is a slap in the face to all of those things.
