Don't Want Armed Nazis? Legislature Should Fix Michigan's Stupid Gun Laws


Free Press columnist sees NAZIs everywhere:

Want to give local police departments the means to keep armed Nazis off Detroit's streets?

Change Michigan's open carry laws.

It's just that simple.

And just that complicated, because our GOP-led Legislature is extremely unlikely to do anything of the sort.

After last week's protest, I emailed spokespeople for Sen. Maj. Leader Mike Shirkey, R-Clarklake, and House Speaker Lee Chatfield, R-Levering, to ask whether the exploitation of Michigan's open carry laws by Nazi protesters would prompt either to reconsider revising those laws, at least with a view toward granting local law enforcement autonomy to handle potentially dangerous situations.

Neither provided a response.

The easy way out for elected 'officials'.. Ignore em, they will go away and we do. They are our employees.
