Umm, Mr. Todd Rathner, the Colt Lobbyist figures that it's significant that the infamous AZ Rangers (like the infamous Vigilante TX Rangers), + the Copper Queen mine security bozo's in Bisbee, AZ used COLT .45 pistola's makes it important to have COLT .45's as AZ state gun. Well, Rathner & AZ better get their heads out of the sand because COLT .45's were also used by mucho bandido bad_guys like stagecoach robbers, murderers, thieves hostile Indians & Mexican revolutionaries also wandering around in AZ before AZ Statehood circa 1900s. I don't have a COLT .45 pistol in my gun collection but do have calibers: .22, .380 Auto, 9mm Auto, .38 special, .40 S&W Auto .45 Auto, .357 mag & .44 Remington Magnum pistolas. However, I do have a single wallhanger, squirrel gun Colt made during the Vietnam War...the M-16 .223 Caliber Remington Varmint Gun used by U.S. Troops for combat today. I preferred the .308 Winchester Caliber M-14 selective fire U.S. Military assault rifle & Soviet AK-47 assault rifle....Yep, now these are real guns...made by WINCHESTER, Springield Armory & the Soviets...hehehe.
Well good deal.at least part of our country and states history won't be lost. If poster AZgirl55 is embarrassed to admit she voted for any of these people why is she telling it on here?
This is how our elected officials are wasting their time? How does this really stupid, time wasting, meaningless action benefit the state of the citizens of Arizona? It doesn't. I am embarrassed to admit I voted for any of these people.
