Official State Gun: Arizona's One Step Closer (Sigh)

www.neaca.com
Arizona legislators want to make this piece synonymous with the Grand Canyon State.
A bill that could potentially make Arizona the first state in the entire country to have an official "state gun" is one step closer to becoming law (that sound you just heard is the collective chuckle of the rest of the country).

As we noted yesterday, more than 40 Arizona state legislators have signed on to a bill that would make the Colt single-action Army revolver the official state firearm. Early this morning, the Senate Appropriations Committee voted 9-4 to advance the measure to a full Senate vote.

No other state in the entire country has an official "state gun." Utah is the only other state to consider such a useless piece of legislation, and recently proposed a similar bill that is currently working its way through the state's Legislature.

The bill is sponsored by all the usual suspects -- Russell Pearce, Judy Burgess, and the rest of the crazies -- in the Legislature that seem to be hell-bent on making Arizona the laughing stock of the entire country. See all their names here.

Yesterday, we outlined why having an official "state gun" is a stupid idea for Arizona. See our arguments here.

I still say the Walther P-38 is a more appropriate pistol, given teh political persuasion of the legislature.

The (Sigh) subtitle is a complete give away that this person obviously has no interest in firearms or the historical significance of such tools that shaped, created & in all reality put into existence our country as we know it today.My real question, is if this person doesn't like guns, why in the hell do they live in Arizona?Go to California if you don't like guns.Thanks.

The real question is why in the hell do we need an official "state gun"? Give me a *&%^$#ing break! If you want to get your rocks off shooting guns and hunting or whatever, go for it. When you can't find anything more important for our state that to declare the official state gun, they I say you are a wee bit obsessed with guns. And don't give me that crap about guns making the west what it was. In the old West in most towns, you had to check your firearms with the sheriff or marshall when you went into town. This state has all the gun freedom any reasonable person could ever want so all you "gun enthusiasts" -- just play with your guns and move on to something else for god sake.

I carry and wear 2 big very sharp knives on my side. and i strap a cattle prod to my handlebars on my HD motorcycle. its all legal and both are cheaper than a gun. you will get hurt bad if you fuck with this ex convict 1%er bike rider.

So you rely on intimidating people in order to avoid a fair fight?.. tuff troglodyte speak you got there.I'm glad you mentioned the knives are sharp, I'd hate to think of them as blunt.

Alehound
Alehound

isnt wearing a badge and a pistol like cops do intimidation? isnt a Hells Angels patch intimidation? do you fuck with them? i bet not. if you were a criminal hood and a mugger robber tweeker would you rob a guy with a gun or with out a gun? which one is an easier better target to rob or mug? intimidation keeps alot of crimes from ever happening. intimidation is good and its all legal. wearing a legal gun on your side is intimidation to. bad guys dont wanna fuck with you when you have a gun or knife on your side.

Alehound
Alehound

the fear of violence is often more scary than the actual violent act itself. so fear and intimidation stops the actual violence from ever happening. thats why people dont fuck with big tough look muscular men or 1%er outlaw bikers. bad guys pick on weak pussy looking people not tough looking intimidating in shape people. get it? its reverse psychology. thats why you wear a big sharp knife ,gun,cattle prod etc. if you look weak in prison you will be takin advantage of. so work out and look strong. see how it works you silly naive ignorant yuppie sheeple?

James King,

What kind of dinosaur bullshit is this ???A single-action Colt army revolver. You're not serious. That's no weapon for the State of Hate to represented by. WTF !!!

A Glock 9 mm. long barrel semi-automatic (in military green finish) with a 31 cartridge, high capacity clip, loaded with anti-personnel hollow point shells.Now that's a f-----g gun.Can you forward my suggestion to whomever it is that can do this right Steve Tracy... Of Funnytown Phoenix

SonsOfLiberty86

Hey Steve Tracy, what the hell are you talking about?Do you even own a gun?I'm guessing not by your Funnytown attitude.Who the hell carries a "long barrel" Glock?Glocks are meant to be a carry weapon. Small. Not "long barrel".And where do you get anti-personnel rounds? Those are not available to civilians.Can you tell me where one even buys those?From my understanding, anti-personnel designates flechette artillery rounds.They don't even make "anti-personnel hollow point shells".Shells aren't hollow point. They are what contains the hollow point round itselfAlso it's called a magazine, not a clip.And what is military green? Do you mean OD green? Or forage green? Or ACU green?Stop talking out of your ass.

Where I come from it is called a "clip".

I suggest you switch to a brand of coffee that has less caffeine in it. Dude, you are way over the top. Calm down a little.

I hope you fuck your wife or girlfriend or boyfriend with as much passion as you came up with in responding to my post.

WHAT I SAID WAS INTENDED AS A SARCASTIC COMMENT ON A TOPIC TOO RIDICULOUS... EXCEPT FOR HERE IN AZ.It was an intended bad taste joke in a reference to the weapon that Jared Lee Loughner used for shooting up that Tucson parking lot.You may have been the only one who didn't pick up on that. And you may also be "A Real Gun Owner", and someone undoubtedly more knowledgeable on firearms than am I, but it is your hypertensive overreaction to my post that serves as reason why I find it unsafe, unnecessary, and unwise to allow the Second Amendment right to the 21st Century public... no offense, homie, but calm down a little.Steve Tracy

Damn. You stole my idea before I could get it down. I agree it makes no sense to have this little toy gun as the State gun when you can have something with real firepower and bang for you buck like the Glock 9 mm. Let's look for a friendly amendment somewhere.

I like this new state gun quite a bit, but wish they'd change the state bird from the wussy cactus wren to the lean and mean roadrunner. I bet a libtard chose the cactus wren.
