Gov. Jan Brewer Makes The Colt Arizona’s State Gun
Arizona’s legislature wanted a state gun. Now they have one in the Colt revolver.
The measure landed on the Republican governor’s desk after narrow approval by the state House last week in the waning hours of the legislative session.
Opponents said the designation was ill-timed, coming as the state deals with the fallout from a massive budget crisis and only months after a mass shooting in Tucson.
A Navajo Nation lawmaker also strongly objected to honoring a gun that killed his people and so many others during its long history in the American West.Click here for reuse options!
