I really hate when we so quickly politicize events like the recent mass shooting

LANSING, Mich. β€” In the wake of mass shootings in Las Vegas and Texas that left dozens of people dead or injured, a Michigan Senate committee approved bills Tuesday that will allow gun owners to carry concealed weapons in gun-free zones such as schools, churches, day care centers, bars, dorms and stadiums.

The shooting at a Baptist church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, on Sunday, which left 26 people dead and 20 more injured, makes state Senate Majority Leader Arlan Meekhof, a Republican from West Olive, Mich., more certain that now is the time to take up the gun legislation.

"Some have said it’s insensitive to bring up these issues now, but I feel quite the opposite," he told a standing room-only crowd in the Senate Government Operations Committee. "The recent events will allow us to look at how we can deter those who want to do harm. And responsible, well-trained, licensed concealed-pistol holders can be one of those deterrents."

Churches are already they most dangerous place in America. Why not provide a bunch of hate-filled folks with unfettered access to loaded weapons? What could possibly go wrong?

Oh, and I'm also very grateful to a bunch of terrified white people for finally allowing my daughter to take her guns to school.
