MI: Time To Ban Gun Sales Until We Find a Way to Keep Them Out of the Wrong hands

Where was the good guy with a gun when an Uber driver shot and killed six people in Kalamazoo on Saturday night?

Where was the good guy with a gun when a mentally unstable man shot a Bay City cop Friday before turning the gun on himself?

And where are the good guys with guns when the estimated 30-some people are slain by firearms every day in America?

No where to be found. And why? Because there are more bad guys with guns doing wrong than there are civilian good guys with guns trying to stop them.

If the shooters in Kalamazoo, Bay City and Flint had been carrying Korans with them, we would hear people shouting from the mountaintops that we need to crack down on radical Islam.
