Blogger Rob Hoey notes that the trigger-happy Senator Smith is as rabidly anti-gun as you would expect.
Sen. Virgil Smith (D-MI) represents parts of Detroit, Dearborn and all of Allen Park. As a Democrat, it should come as no surprise that he is rated at 0% by the Michigan Coalition for Responsible Gun Ownership.
Smith has voted anti-gun since taking office in the House of Representatives back in 2003 to 2008, and now as a state senator.
The NRA rated Smith “D” regarding his voting on gun rights, which translates to 21% overall.
He voted “nay” on SB 59 bill that: “Expands Areas Where Concealed Weapons are Authorized,” and voted “nay” on SB 789 that “Amends Firearm Licensing Procedures,” that makes obtaining a license easier but with more training.
