The Posse would be remiss if we did not note with pleasure the decision of Michigan's governor to sign the self-defense legislation into law.
When these bills were introduced, the usual suspects cried and gnashed their teeth. Why blood would flow in the streets, mayhem would result and of course Dodge City or the Wild West would emerge in every quiet suburbian neighborhood.
Obviously, it didn't work.
As we noted at the time, Michigan was told to expect a similar crime wave right after it switched to a shall-issue concealed pistol license system in 2001. Instead, the murder rate fell.
In fact, not a single CCW permit holder has committed the kind of outrage we were told was inevitable.
Is it any wonder that gun control groups now feel the need to create bogus gun rights organizations to advance their agenda?
