Governor Rick Snyder made a big impact on gun control in Michigan last night when he chose to veto a bill that would allow concealed weapons on schools and churches.

Snyder has been on both sides of the bill, but most people feel that the tragic shooting in Newtown Conn. played a major roll in his decision to turn down the bill.

The Governor was quoted saying, “I don’t see the value of having weapons really present in the schools, hospitals and places like that.”  The fact that Snyder was nearly the victim of a school shooting while at U of M also may have played a roll in his decision.

Regardless of his motivation the decision has been made and I personally feel that it was the right one.  With the growing problem of a "shoot first" gun society, the answer is not more guns.
