The Blood Is Not Yet Dry, And The Stupid Has Already Started To Fly

While much is still not known about the atrocity in Las Vegas, that has not kept the talking heads and pundits from a full-court press for gun bans, nor for the uninformed to spout off on things about which they know not.

Nor has it taken long for moronic politicians to start introducing laws in order to show they will "do something", and one of the dumbest proposals so far goes to Detroit Councilwoman Janee Ayers:

The Detroit News: Councilwoman wants gun restrictions in Detroit hotels

Yes, she's actually proposing to ban guns from hotels in Detroit, seriously.

a Detroit City Council member said she wants restrictions on rifles and semiautomatic weapons in hotel rooms in the city that face public spaces.

Councilwoman Janee Ayers said she will ask the city’s Law Department to study the feasibility of measures to secure powerful weapons during the council’s Tuesday session. An ordinance could include anything from an outright ban to measures to secure patrons’ guns in the hotel.

While she got some face-time and publicity that she would otherwise not get from this inane proposal, at least we can be happy that Michigan has state level preemption that prohibits dancers in the blood from infringing on people's rights in truly inane knee-jerk ways in response to a criminal and murderous act.

Hey Aaron;

Yes the stupid burns, it seems that the democrats have a set of talking points ready to go in case of a tragedy. Talk about an opportunist.
