I am absoluetly floored about this.

I mean, I know thatI am extreme in my rebuking of people who make all democrats out to be anti gun, and making all republicans to be pro gun, and I know it's not true, but there is a grain of truth to it.

I maintain my judging politicians by the laws they introduce and not by the color of the party, and this guy here is why.

I mean, I know people here, and other various boards assumed with the crimson tide in november that we would get better 2A votes, but I never expected ANY politician of ANY party to have the stones to relax gun laws in light of recent events, and especially not a democrat.

Kudos to him, I hope we get it, but damn, it will make moving out of Michigan harder.

I agree. I was waiting for you to bring that up, I noticed it right away, but it seemed appropriate to let you point that out, considering that you have taken so much crap about it.
I wasn't going to Stainless. I had typed up a big long childish post making fun of Wolverine, and others who have flamed me, plus a Mod who let them get away with it, then I thought better of it.

I figured that this LIBERAL introducing one of the most important bills us 2A people could get, would be enough for me.

LeBlanc vindicated me, so now, I will let my haters swear at thier computer screens, while I smile, and hopefully carry my peice a whole lot more places!

We all win when we work together.

Alright folks...we are about to find out what we have in Lansing. If this bill dies in committee, we know we will have a tough road ahead. If this goes and gets passed, we get to find out if our Governor is Pro-2A. I thought a small tester bill could have accomplished that, but this is a big one. Buckle up.
