In an all-night session, the Arizona legislature failed override Governor Jan Brewer’s veto of the so-called “birther bill” (HB2177) before it adjourned, but in the closing moments of the session passed a bill making the Colt revolver the state’s official firearm.

I’ve always found Dr. Dunham to be an inspiring person (I also feel a connection because my mother died of ovarian cancer as well…).
D’oh – Doc just moved Misha’s like to the article on Dr. Dunham to the open thread.
Just to stay on-topic: I think that making the Colt revolver the state firearm is clearly more important than any birther legislation… (damning with faint praise intentional).
“What is the unemployment rate in Arizona?”
“What is the situation with depressed house prices?”
“Maybe we should do something about it?”
Those are just some of the questions nobody asked in these all night sessions and obsessions about birth certificates and guns.
Unbelievable the knuckleheads they have running things down there.
What does it say about a mindset, when you need to have an official state gun?
Dr. C – Is there an article link you can attach to this blog post?
Actually, maybe there’s a benefit to that law – the nice thing about a colt revolver is that it is single action & holds 6 bullets. If Jared Loughner.had been carrying one of those, there would have been a lot fewer deaths and injuries last January, perhaps no deaths at all. So if this helps the gun dealers in Arizona to sell more revolvers and fewer automatic weapons… I’d be all for that.
Blondes having more fun: Orly takes on Governor Jan Brewer at the ComPost and Email:
I’m SHOCKED to see Orly accusing the President of TREASON against the state of Arizona.
They’re going to be really, really sorry they didn’t silence these nutjobs way sooner. Now they have a petition to recall Brewer. Damned if they do, and damned if they don’t now. lmao
Are there other opportunities to override or have the last rites been read in this bill?
