Arizona Lawmakers Want Cities To Sell Guns From Buyback Programs

 

 

 

” Arizona lawmakers, stepping into the contentious national gun control debate, approved a controversial measure on Tuesday mandating that cities and counties resell firearms turned in during gun buyback programs rather than melt them down.

The Republican-controlled Arizona state Senate voted 18-12 to no longer allowed firearms to be destroyed by local municipalities, saying it was a waste of taxpayer money. The state House approved the bill in March.

The measure must now be signed or vetoed by Republican Governor Jan Brewer, a staunch gun rights advocate. A spokesman for the governor declined comment on the fate of the legislation late on Tuesday.”

 

   Good for Arizona taxpayers . In this time of chronic budget deficits it is insane for municipalities to spend hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars for guns that are going to be destroyed .

Gov. Rick Perry Backs Teachers Packing Heat

 

 

” Compounding a mild pro-gun rant with a declaration to consider a 2016 presidential run, Texas Governor Rick Perry affirmed his commitment to the Second Amendment by encouraging allowing all teachers in the state to carry guns on campus at a Tea Party event Monday.

Perry’s pro-gun remarks arrive amid a heated national gun control debate in which governors across the country are either defending the Second Amendment or taking steps to destroy it.

A Senate bill (S.B. 59) passed by the Michigan house would allow citizens to carry firearms into “pistol free” zones; it awaits Gov. Rick Snyder’s signature.

New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez told the Albuquerque Journal the state should “consider legislation to keep guns out of the hands of the mentally ill” before considering more drastic action.

Some legislators are geniunely confused about the entire situation and don’t know where to put the blame.

Arizona governor Jan Brewer, whose state weathered heavy Second Amendment attacks following last year’s Tucson shooting, says the answer may lie inevaluating behavioral health services, not in gun control, while Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper pointed to video games and a “culture of violence” as the main contributing factors in these types of attacks.

“There might well be some direct connection between people who have some mental instability and when they go over the edge – they transport themselves, they become part of one of those video games,” Hickelooper told CNN’s State of the Union.”

This man possesses some of that spine that is in scant supply inside the Beltway .

“He is the most ill-prepared person to assume the presidency in my lifetime,” Christie told some 600 Kentucky Republicans at a Lexington hotel. “This is a guy who literally is walking around in a dark room trying to find the light switch of leadership.”

This demonstrates the value of  governorships as incubators of real leadership . They actually have to take responsibility for their decisions unlike congressional denizens .
    Who besides governors are actually dealing with the issues of the day ? Think Scott Walker , Jan Brewer , Bobby Jindal , Chris Christie .

“Now listen,” he said, “this country’s problems are too serious, too serious, to spend another
day with a bystander in the oval office.”
