Can we expect our constitutional officers to do their jobs appropriately after this year?
What priorities will the new attorney general of Michigan bring to bear on the populace?
It sure as hell won’t be protecting citizens from an over reaching government. Except perhaps for those areas where ‘protecting’ means extending ‘rights’ that don’t exist outside of social norms.
All cultural ills aside, what about Michigan’s firearms protections? What about keeping local feelings about whether or not it is appropriate to be able to defend oneself with a pistol?
Preemption in Michigan has always protected Michigan gun owners from the overtime efforts of ordinances, rules, restrictions, etc. Theoretically, it provided protections for firearms possession by those with a CCW even in school environments up until the Michigan Supreme Court screwed the pooch.
The law still provides protections however, and the municipalities run by even the shadiest left wing whack jobs cannot even prevent firearms from being carried into council meeting environments. That is, unless they are held in a bar or (now) a school.
But in January, priorities change. The Democrats were able to elect the slate they have been pushing for 8-12 years, and what might have once been a state that respected law and order, will now revert to governance by emotion and fear mongering.
