    Since the Sandy Hook shooting of a year ago, roughly 1500 state gun laws have been introduced, and 109 have become law. The 39 laws that tightened gun restrictions are overwhelmingly in legislatures controlled by Democrats, and the 70 laws that loosened gun restrictions are in legislatures that are controlled by Republicans:

    Although Arizona was not mentioned in the New York Times article, it's a known fact that the state has some of the country's loosest gun laws.

    In 2010, the state removed the requirements for training and permits for concealed weapons, and in 2011, Arizona became the second state in the country to designate a state firearm.

    The designation of the Colt Single Action Army revolver came into law roughly 3 months after Representative Gabby Giffords was shot in a Tucson parking lot.

    Nothing epitomizes the nuttiness of my new home state more than the Scottsdale Gun Club. For the 4th year in a row, you can have a picture of your kid taken with Santa - and a machine gun. Here's a link to their website:

    I really can't think of anything that's more stupid than that.

    Hi Arizona: ----------------An NRA Christmas (Poem)

    Now now, we should not deny the opportunity for the NRA, to increase PROFITS on our Big Holiday.
    Kids should get used to the fact there will be, an arsenal to wipe out every house & Yule tree.
    Reindeers with guns on their antlers, & inside the SLAY, will be even more guns to be seen on display.
    Santa will of course have on his red suit, with a gun belt to hold all his pistols to shoot.
    Why should kids want some dumb candy canes? When they can get guns to shoot out their brains?
    After awhile, in the season so merry, we'll be buying bazooka's & a license to carry,
    So someday not far, we'll need a place we can bury, every tiny precious Tom Dick & Harry.
    But don't let it bother you, it's not too scarey, - we'll just have to build a new cemetery.

    There we'll dedicate a place we can PRAY ------ that GOD will DAMN the NRA.
