Gretchen Whitmer is no friend to hunters, sports shooters, or those who self defend.
The reality when looking at the gubernatorial race is that #thePartyOfCrime (as a rule) is not the gun owner’s friend.
We have had Michigan Democrats who claim they do not want to take your guns, but then speak of enhanced registration, or further limits on where lawful gun carrying might take place. There have been legitimate Dem politicos (Bart Stupak for one) who even faced personal firearm tragedy and yet was honorable enough to respect our 2A tradition.
Those days are gone however, and the reality of the zombie #MOB Democrats is upon us.
The ACA, a health insurance mandate conveniently had lines of [code] within it to begin stealth registry of gun owners through doctor visits. Gretchen Whitmer and other gun grabbers pushed it hard for Michigan.
Whitmer has in the past called for enhanced background checks, extended waiting lists and red flag bills that can deny due process to those with supposed mental problems and depression. (where could THAT possibly go wrong?) She has also spoken on prohibitions of ‘assault weapons,’ wherever the hell that definition falls on any day of the week.
Michigan’s sporting heritage may not be at risk in the immediate future from some of these minor tweaks that Gretchen Whitmer and today’s Democrats #Mobs advocate, but is it worth the risk?
Halloween can be spooky enough without this ghoul stalking law abiding gun owners.
It's not Republicans who are trying to disarm Michiganians.
Yes Michigan, there are differences between the Democrats and Republicans.
Before we start shooting ourselves in the foot and pretending that Johnson-Weld Libertarians are the neo-Republicans from a whigged out GOP, remember that Weld once (and likely still) favored gun control. Not too far away from Weld is Hillary, who quite simply wants to disarm a nation that might fight back as she consolidates power for the final blow.
Let their be no confusion about the current incarnation of the Democrat party, and the need to disarm the people in this state as well. Dressed as an ‘assault weapons ban’ Michigan’s HB-5996 introduced a couple days ago goes all New York State in a ‘New York Minute.’ Banning certain cosmetic features, functional elements, magazines over 10 rounds, and requiring new registrations of legacy equipment is the hallmark of the east coast styled gun grabbers.
Shunned former 'Republican' representative joins anti gun lobbying efforts
In 2014, voters of the northern Michigan 107th house district did the rest of Michigan ‘a solid.’.
It was becoming clear that the incumbent Republican for that district was in no way representative of the conservative values he had pretended in his initial bid. From accepting tens of thousands for his upcoming campaign loss from pro-homosexual lobbying interests, added to an otherwise liberal voting record, Frank Foster had completely alienated the very (tea party) base he had enchanted in 2010.
Foster lost to Lee Chatfield in the primary of 2014, marking a rare incumbency defeat in the Michigan house races. Voters turned him out in a 6 point rout:
His departure has hardly left him out in the cold however. He is apparently remaining in the political scene as a gun grabber.
An examination of the minutes from a recent hearing on preemption bill (HB 4795) before the committee on local government reveal Foster is still active, and has apparently gone completely to the dark side. His time there was to represent opposition to legislation which provides further 2A protections for gun owners from abusive local government.
