I'm a strong 2nd Amendment advocate, absolutely. But, every right and every law must be driven by common sense. The idea of opening up college campuses to guns cannot be reconciled with wisdom. Just ask those who will be forced to manage the consequences.
Gov. Jan Brewer said she won’t support any new laws to limit who can carry a gun, even in the wake of the killing of students and teachers in Connecticut.
PHOENIX -- A Senate panel set the stage Wednesday for a confrontation between state and federal law enforcement over gun laws.
I just spent some time running numbers. The most successful gun control law in the U.S. was passed in Kennesaw, Ga., in 1982. The crime rate dropped 89 percent in the city, compared to the modest 10 percent drop state-wide, it has stayed at the same low level. If you are going to look at gun laws, shouldn’t you take the most successful one into account? Well, maybe not in Marietta, Ga., it is illegal to spit from a car or a bus, but perfectly legal to spit from a truck. Couldn’t find out how that’s working out.
Two top Arizona Republicans argued Friday that the escalating violence along the Mexican border should not be used as an excuse for new regulation of firearms.
Fearing new federal laws and regulations, a state legislator wants to provide legal cover for Arizonans who do not want to obey them -- and penalties for federal officials who try to enforce them.
Jan Brewer said Monday she's "not sure'' whether the shootings in Connecticut mean Arizona needs to revisit the various laws expanding the right to carry weapons in public she has signed in her four years as governor.
Saying it's nobody business, state lawmakers are poised to keep local governments -- and anyone else -- from finding out who owns a gun.
New laws to regulate gun sales in this country are not the answer to increasing violence in Mexico and along the border, Gov. Jan Brewer told federal lawmakers Monday.
If the federal government wants to block SB 1070 on the grounds that it “is preempted by federal law and therefore violates the Supremacy Clause of the United States Constitution,” then they should also examine and throw out the thousands of other laws on all the states’ books which reiterate and interpret federal law.
Dan Thomasson: Firearms mania seems to fall into several broad categories with elements of each in the other. Present in all three classifications is an element of paranoia, a strong belief that without these weapons one is not likely to survive the truly crazy (like maybe one's testy neighbor or a disaffected co-worker or student seeking revenge from bullies) or the ubiquitous criminals that use guns as necessary tools in their business
In a report being released today, Amnesty International says stun guns made by Scottsdale-based Taser International are being abused by police and wants more scientific study done to determine whether the devices are safe.
The fiancee of a congressional staffer killed along with five others in the shooting that severely injured Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, D-Ariz., urged state lawmakers Tuesday to ban gun magazines that hold more than 10 rounds.

Possible hazardous waste contamination at a gun range near northeast Mesa has prompted an investigation that some say is long overdue.
Upon viewing several TV shows developed on the basis of “profiling”, one would query the constant criticism directed at police profiling. Unless law enforcement witnesses the “smoking gun” or catches the perpetrator(s) walking out the door, most criminal investigations start with profiling, whether the ‘politically correct’ officials wish to admit it or not.
Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, and children of all ages, once again it's show time.
Of the seventeen pardons recently granted by President Obama for various crimes, one was to a person convicted of illegal possession of an unregistered firearm. So much for gun laws.
Ever wondered why citizens are gunned down in droves in Mexico every day? Citizens are not permitted to possess weapons to protect themselves there. They are unarmed sitting ducks because they have no second amendment right to do so. And yet, they are being murdered constantly by other citizens. Other citizens who are also not permitted by law to possess weapons. It’s not hard to connect those dots and predict what would happen in America if we were not protected by the second amendment, is it? So, why is even one American citizen willing to throw away the right to bear arms — much less a majority of Americans (if we can believe the percentages being reported as anti-gun nuts, that is) being willing to become helpless victims?
Weaponized America. Cooking. Terrified. Absolutists. Celebrate violence. Murder spree. Mike McClellan’s guest commentary leads with these words that serve only to color a deeper issue than what type of bullets and guns are out there. I’m not convinced “we” Americans celebrate violence since I am a “we” and I do not and I don’t know one American who does.
The owner of a north Phoenix gun store has been charged with knowingly selling AK-47 style rifles and other weapons to front men who were supplying a major arms smuggling ring that ferried the weapons into Mexico, Arizona Attorney General Terry Goddard said Tuesday.
The issue of gun control has once again come to the surface, in light of several bills passed by the state Legislature before the session ended.
Mike McClellan is right. We, the U.S. of A., are a major supplier of guns to Mexico. We’ll sell guns to anyone that has the cash to buy them, and the drug cartels have a LOT of cash. It’s cash they earned from selling drugs.
