Skip to comments.Flint Mayor Dayne Walling in Washington, D.C., pushing for gun control
Posted on 09/19/2013 4:04:23 AM PDT by Darren McCarty
Flint Mayor Dayne Walling will join survivors of gun violence, victims families, other politicians, law enforcement, gun owners and faith leaders in Washington, D.C., on Thursday, Sept. 19.
Walling will be there as a member of Mayors Against Illegal Guns during a news conference at 10:30 a.m. at the U.S. Capitol.
Were asking lawmakers to support common sense gun safety including universal background checks, Walling told The Flint Journal.
The No More Names tour has been in 25 states in the last 100 days, urging elected officials to reconsider bipartisan gun background check legislation that enjoys overwhelming public support but that a minority of U.S. Senators blocked in April, a statement said.

Doesn’t Flint have a police force?
Faith leaders wanting to disarm citizens? Faith is good to have when confronted by thugs trying to do harm to you. Having faith in the primer and powder charge going off and propelling the lead slug out the barrel is as far as I’d take it. The rest is aim and ability to drop the hammer.
“common sense” gun safety...
The progs are arrogating that term lately. One feels a sharp, sudden Paine whenever the words are used by the left.
I can't tell.
The problem with anti-gun a**holes is that they face no consequences. Irrespective of the two successful recalls in Colorado, people like this jerk, Diane Swineslime, etc. have nothing to lose by pushing it. OTO if even one of their proposals passes we’ve lost something. I know what consequences I’d like them to face, but since that’s illegal, and would be ineffective unless widespread enough to get large numbers of them with many people participating, that remains just a passing thought. Still the thought of feinsten decorating a lamppost is a pleasant one.
It's a talking point squawked by the parrots on the left.
Gun safety is what I practice. There's nothing safe about gun grabbers.
Walling is just another idiot Democrap. He wants to initiate another gun free zone like Chicago so he can become the crime capital of the US. When are these morons gonna learn, it’s not the guns causing your problems it’s your thugs. Flint Michigan is broke. Walling is failing as mayor to bring jobs to his city so he needs a distraction, just like Obama always needs a distraction to cover up his inadequacies as a leader.
The police are probably guarding the politicians like Dang Walling.
CRIME INDEX (for Flint)
(100 is safest) Safer than 1% of the cities in the US.
Don’t if they have a crime index of ZERO.
Ok mayor, you want everyone disarmed so why don’t you start it? Tell the armed police that are always guarding you they aren’t needed anymore. Oh, and be sure to tell everyone.
The ruling class is never expected to live by the rules they force on us.
Regurgitating the BIG LIE:
“bipartisan gun background check legislation that enjoys overwhelming public support”
Barf Alert In Order.
And the Lions are Super Bowl champions.
How ‘bout a criminal control, Dayne ?
You’re right about Flint, but you left out that it is the home port of Michael Moore. In better times it was also home to Buick and one of General Motor’s founders, Charles Stewart Mott.
I misread the headline. I was thinking there was a proposal to wall in D.C.
Which, when you think about, ain’t such a bad idea...
Wonder “whose” public opinion they are speaking of? The support must be centered in Detroitistan.
> Doesnt Flint have a police force?
Of course he does. Let him strip everyone of weapons there. Just means that when the real patriots finally have had enough and march on Washington their job will be easier.
Dayne Walling has a bachelor’s degree from Michigan State in “Social Relations”. Bwahahahaha! “Can’t we all just get along”. Flint’s demographics shows it as 54% African American, single female head of household rate is 34%. Unemployment rate is 17%. Sounds to me like Walling needs to stay at home and do a little taking care of his own business before he goes prancing off to Washington to tell the rest of us what we ought to do about gun control.
Moore’s a rich boy from the burbs, not Flint. He now lives on Torch Lake.
Charles Stewart Mott was a richer boy from Flint.
