1. to commit a breach or infraction of; violate or transgress: to infringe a copyright; to infringe a rule.
Rules are made to be infringed upon, right?
Michigan Governor Rick Snyder might not have signed on the dotted line for SB59, but it is likely it will come up again, and perhaps with some minor changes. We can recognize the knee-jerk reactionary attitude towards firearms under the circumstances, and though it has affected good policy in our state, and perhaps the reaction does not seem logical, Michigan's situation can still be fixed. Snyder's veto was merely a reflex test result with a little jerk. Not surprisingly, NY state has a wholly different result with the knee breaking backward to smack the face.
New York's Lawmakers drive home yet another reason to .. not. live. there.
Ignoring 83,000 babies killed in NYC alone in 2010, (nearest statistics I could find) arch leftist gun grabbers in NY State wasted no time in enacting a gun grab and (of course) a money grab scheme allegedly based on the deaths of the children in Newtown.
"Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo signed into law a sweeping package of gun-control measures on Tuesday, significantly expanding a ban on assault weapons and making New York the first state to change its laws in response to the mass shooting at a Connecticut elementary school."The speed in which such things are passed must make one think that the shelves are full of devised infringements.

Detroit is numero uno.
Recently, Michigan was ranked quite high as having a few of "most violent cities in America".
In fact we had four of the top ten cities considered as such, and the attorney general of Michigan Bill Schuette has requested some of the "surplus" income the state has discovered, be used for more policing based on this. Flint and Detroit, both with high per cap murder rates, and the counts to keep those rates high. Philadelphia has laid claim to the murder rate with its paltry 322 homicide count just two days before the year's end, but it doesn't square with the 1.5 million residents greater Philly encompasses, as compared to the 950,000 pop in Detroit and its 344 Murder-Death-Kill tally.
But something popped into the in-box today that had me reconsider who might be truly holding the biggest slaughterfest in the country, and I had to do some number follow ups.
