Republicans push to legalize silencers, sawed-off shotguns
PHOENIX (AP) -The Arizona Senate has given initial approval to a bill legalizing sawed-off shotguns, silencers and nunchucks.
Republican Sen. Kelli Ward of Lake Havasu City on Monday added an amendment legalizing the weapons and accessories onto a minor bill that restores a person's gun rights if a judge sets aside a guilty conviction.
Rep. Steve Farley of Tucson said Ward's amendment makes the bill less about helping people and more about legalizing weapons prohibited under Arizona law.
Senate Bill 1460 received initial approval Monday and now awaits a formal vote.
Oooh. Such a bad thing, that "freedom"! I mean, these guns would still fall under the National Firearms Act (NFA) and anyone wanting one would have to submit fingerprints and photographs and the gun would be registered right to them...and SO many people use NFA weapons to commit crimes, right? I think that the tally still stands at TWO since 1986.
But facts are like kryptonite to media hacks with a partisan agenda, aren't they, KPHO?
