Domestic Violence Gun Bill Showed Lack Of Common Sense

The New York Times editorial board is heaping praise on Governor Rick Snyder of Michigan for vetoing Senate Bill 789, which would have prevented subjects of restraining orders from getting concealed gun permits.

Snyder shouldn’t have caved into pressure from liberal idols like former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, who lobbied against the bill. But the real culprits for this fiasco are those who created SB 789 in the first place.

Conservatives are setting a trap for themselves by getting involved in arguments on domestic violence. The NRA, who started this mess by advocating for the bill in national media, should stay away from this issue altogether.

This is the type of fringe conservatism that leads the party to pick someone best know for castrating hogs to deliver the response to the state of the union.
