Hours after the terrible shooting in a Newtown, Connecticut elementary school, the Michigan House Republicans... demanded that Governor Rick Snyder (R) sign a bill that would make it easier for people to receive a gun permit and open up “gun free zones,” including schools.Meanwhile, Republican Presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee has already patiently explained on Fox that gun massacres happen in schools because we don't have mandated Christian pray-time happening in them instead, and like so many Very Serious people on the tee vee right now he just wants to make sure that whatever else we might do or say we definitely shouldn't be talking about guns at a time like this. Unless it is to insist that we need many more of them in many more places, that is. And as they tweeted yesterday, by all means "Keep the Momentum Going! Ask Your Friends to 'Like' the NRA!"
