Lax gun control legislation, thanks to the NRA and Janet Brewer, assumes ordinary people are reasonable and have common sense. Arizona has one of the highest rates of extremism nationally for many reasons, all of which horrify me. There is nothing reasonable or common sensical about this extremism. Extremists easily identify with and then act impulsively upon politically violent rhetoric and fanaticism. Party politics aside, the media itself is partly responsible for how this rhetoric is reported or sensationalized. If extremism sells, that is how it is portrayed.
