Hey, all, I'm still on extremely restricted diary-posting duty for the next few weeks, but I couldn't let this one slip by:

State House passes bill allowing concealed weapons in schools, day care centers, stadiums, churches

Changes to the concealed weapons law passed the state House Thursday evening, allowing highly trained gun owners to carry their weapons in formerly verboten places, like schools, day care centers, stadiums and churches.

Yes, that's right, in addition to the union-busting RTW bill, the misogynistic anti-abortion/anti-contraception/anti-women bill, the all-new Emergency Manager bill (to replace the one that was just shot down 5 weeks ago) and the package of public school-destroying bills that they're trying to cram through, the Michigan House of Representatives has just voted to make it legal to bring concealed weapons into DAY CARE CENTERS.

Let me repeat that: DAY CARE CENTERS.
I've nothing else to say at this time.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
