"Evil" Republicans Trying to Legalize Suppressors and Short-Barreled Shotguns in AZ

And typically, the leftist media is outraged.

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?

    The media would cease to be if they presented the facts.

  2. What can you say - media types just don't comprehend.

    Last trip to the range, the guy next to son's lane was shooting a Glock 21 with a 5-6" can. I'd never before given much thought to suppressed pistols, but left that day impressed, as the only sound was the 'ping' of the bullets hitting the trap downrange.

    Texas still has a chance at passing an open carry provision in this legislative session, although it appears the hoplophobes have shifted tactics, now trying to scare Texans with editorials that the related campus carry will cost Texas college systems tens of millions of dollars.

  3. Wow, Michigan presently has better NFA laws than Arizona!

    I'm surprised they didn't claim this would return Arizona to the bad ol' days of the Wild Silenced West. With the obligatory blood in the streets from silent short weapons, not to mention the danger to mimes once silencers are legalized.

  4. I'm still trying to figure out what the folks in"Walking Dead" are using as silencers..
