Rejoice citizens of Vantroit, you proved you want nothing to do with honesty and integrity.
Tim Leavitt staggers his way into a second term leading Vantroit to ruin.

You all want a city like Detroit?
You got it.

Politicians imposed an “Assault Weapons Ban” in September 1994 with a 10 year sunshine clause, allowing it to expire in September 2004. During the time of that ban, we saw the following happen,

Democrats didn’t pass a budget in 2010 because it was “a political hot potato?”
And Compromise? I didn’t realize any Democrats even knew how to say that word.
