My Michigan State Senator has lost my support. Look at this non-commitment letter.

Dear Mr. Lippo,
Thank you for your call regarding Senate Bills 1381 and 1382 which would prohibit the manufacture, transfer or possession of assault weapons. I appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts with me.
As you may be aware, SBs 1381 and 1382 were introduced by Senator Gilda Jacobs on September 9, 2004. The bill were subsequently referred to the Senate Committee on Judiciary where they are currently awaiting action. Please be assured that I will keep your thoughts in mind should SBs 1381 and 1382 reach the full Senate for a vote.
In the meantime, please do not hesitate to contact my office should you have further questions regarding this or any state matter. Again I thank you for sharing your concerns with me.
At some point, these "Repbulicans" who spout gun rights will have to be told very firmly that they are going to be held responsible for their anti-gun votes, then some how, some way, they'll be held responsible. I get sick of these women in congress pushing their, "I WILL have control over men", ways.
False is the idea of utility... that would take fire from men because it burns, and water because one may drown in it; that has no remedy for evils, except the destruction of liberty.
