Stunningly enough for those who predicted blood running in the streets and parking lots, not much changed after Michigan reformed it's concealed carry law a decade ago. The state changed from a "discretionary issue" state in which few other than retired cops could carry, to one in which the authorities were required to issue a permit to any law abiding adult resident who went through the fairly simple permit process. Even the anti-reform public officials have come around to saying they were mistaken. That is quite a turn around.
The Bradyites though, remain as rabid as they ever were, and the Detroit Free Press does a decent job of showing that as well.

Reporters Dawson Bell and Gina Damron did an honest job. I wish more reporters were so open to reality. Thanks to them.
