Michigan Governor Folds Like A Cheap Suit - Carry Reform To Be Vetoed

He can stand up to unions, but not to liberal mass hysteria and misinformation.

The Detroit Free Press: Republicans: Snyder to veto concealed weapons bill

Gov. Rick Snyder will veto a bill later today that would have allowed gun owners with extra training to carry their concealed weapons in schools, churches, day care centers and stadiums, according to Republican sources.

The veto comes just four days after a horrific shooting in Newtown, Conn., in which a heavily armed 20-year-old muscled his way into the Sandy Hook Elementary School and killed 20 first graders and six adults.

Because of course, no one would ever commit a crime with a firearm in any of those places before taking two 8 hour training classes, passing federal and state background checks to be provably not a felon, and provably not having committed any misdemeanors in the three years prior to applying and paying an application fee.

Banning a bill that would not cause, and in fact would significantly lessen the chance of a school or other mass shooting, after a mass shooting has taken place is and act of emotion rather than logic. If he wanted to prevent future incidents, signing the law and pushing for more mental health facilities would do far more.

But at least he's seen "doing something", even though it still won't win him any points with the left after he passed right-to-work.

One of my senators campaigned with a pic showing him with a rifle and a pledge to protect our rights. Guess who is having a change of heart?

Yep, right-side politicians have all the spine of a jellyfish.
