Arizona Wants A State Gun
Arizona is considering making the Colt the official firearm of the state.
Almost half the state’s lawmakers are co-sponsors of the bill honoring the Colt single-action Army revolver. The Senate Appropriations Committee voted 9-4 early Wednesday to advance the measure.
A Colt lobbyist said the revolver helped settle the Arizona Territory.
Anti-gun activists want lawmakers to consider bills limiting guns in the wake of a deadly Tucson shooting that killed six and wounded Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. But the Republican-led Legislature has a strong record of supporting gun rights.
Utah has a measure making the Browning M1911 semiautomatic a state gun that has made it through the legislature and is awaiting the governor’s signature.Click here for reuse options!
