    Only four Democrats (Miranda, Brown, Pancrazi, and McGuire) voted for it. Out of 25.

    Not good.

    I switched parties temporarily so I can vote for Buz Mills (of Gunsite) in the GOP primary, but I might just stay there if the Democrats are going to continue mouthing support for the 2nd Amendment and then vote against it at any opportunity (are you reading this, Patterson?)

    Nice. If it passes, AZ will rise to the top of my list of places to look for a job after I get my degree…

    Good news.

    But please … let’s correct the folks to speak of this as “Arizona state legislature is ALLOWING people to carry” …

    They aren’t so much allowing it, as they are repealing a prohibition. More germane would be discussions regarding whether or not congress or legislatures are “allowed” to ban it in the first place.

    Here, here!!!

    “The right of the individual citizen to BEAR arms in defense of himself or the State shall not be impaired, but nothing in this section shall be construed as authorizing individuals or corporations to organize, maintain, or employ an armed body of men.”

    Is there any question as to what that means? I mean REALLY? We all agreed that we would use English as our language RIGHT?

    Now to see if brewer will sign it. I have a strange feeling she won’t. For whatever reason I think it will just become law without her siganture.

    Very nice! Now, since Missouri has a history of following Arizona’s lead in ‘controversial’ laws in the past, let’s see if they’ll follow on this.

    I won’t hold my breath though.

    Shawn,

    I will repeat what I replied to you on AZ Rifleman’s Blog:

    Brewer herself requested a slight change in language to the Constitutional Carry bill to INCREASE the chances of it passing the final vote and not being challenged in court. She signed restaurant carry, the parking lot bill, full preemption, and the firearms freedom act. Why wouldn’t she sign Constitutional carry?

    Now other states must press this idea home with all speed until we are all a bit more free.

    Come on, Pennsylvania. You’re the cradle of the revolution. We support you next.
