Tim Skubick: Bill allowing guns in schools languishes, despite pro-gun Michigan legislature

The decidedly pro-gun Michigan legislature has to holster its intentions to permit weapons in schools, sports arenas, and other public places.

Without fanfare and with no public announcement Sen. Mike Green (R-Mayville) has been told to back off the bill by the senate GOP leadership.

“Right now nobody wants to seem to take it up,” he reflects on the harsh realities of the senate. Senators are inching into a pre-election year mode when those seeking to hang onto their seats are getting antsy about tackling sticky issues such as guns in schools.

Sen. Green is eager to get going but the senate GOP leadership has other thoughts. “I’ve been told the budget, transportation funding and other issues” have moved into the higher priority category, which is code to forget that stuff for now."

This is what I call a "self congratulatory" article by the MSM. A "see how powerful we are" "we stopped this legislation" article. What the leadership in Michigan should learn, is that they will be blamed for everything, just because they are Republicans. They do not gain good will from the MSM by caving to them.

There is *no* public pressure for more gun control, just a bunch of push polls cleverly worded for the uniformed. All the "pressure" is self generated media pressre by the MSM.

Here’s the right way to get guns in schools. But you’ll never hear this suggested by liberals because they don’t want our children to be safe:

Require a specially trained security officer for each 150 elementary student block. 2 for every 150 middle school and high school student block. Protects the kids from outsiders and from each other. They can be volunteers too. Retired police and military might enjoy it. I know I would.

The thought of kids around armed untrained liberal NEA dingbats scares the ever living crap outa me.

And that's only because our RINO governer is on record as saying he will not support the bill!

It ain't about the senate, it ain't about the bill itself, it all about SPENCER!

I am one sorry conservative who has to admit that I voted for this POS!

Let's not forget Randy Richardville, he's another RINO that needs to go.
