You just can’t make this shit up.
The Republican-led Michigan State Senate passed a bill today that would allow people with concealed weapons permits to carry concealed weapons in traditionally pistol-free zones like bars, schools, day care centers, stadiums, churches, and college dorms.
In apparent agreement with the NRA’s claim about “a good guy with a gun,” the Michigan State Senate’s Republican majority leader referred to gun-free zones like schools and stadiums as “target-rich environments.” He added that the bill that passed the State Senate gives “anyone who wants to exercise their right to protect themselves and have a firearm should be able to do that where they need to.”
This Senate-passed bill must still pass the GOP-led House. If it does pass, it will be sent to the Republican governor, who vetoed a similar bill in 2012 following the mass shooting of elementary schoolchildren in Newtown, Connecticut.
In the meantime, the governor is not commenting on the new legislation until (or if) it wins final legislative passage.
Are these people crazy, or what?
