Too bad Michigan doesn't have the same stand your ground/self defense laws as Texas does. There wouldn't have been 4 punches thrown then, I can assure you.

Yep, I believe the protestors would have been introduces to Mr. Colt, Mr. Smith and Mr, Wesson.

The Republican controlled Michigan legislature passed right-to-work legislation late Tuesday morning as union members loudly protested inside and outside of the Capitol in Lansing. Michigan Democrat Rep. Douglas Geiss threatened on the House floor this morning "there would be blood" if the legislation passed. Riot police have been on the scene since early this morning bracing for violence.

The Michigan House Democrats reiterated their threat on their Twitter page, but have since deleted it.
