On this day in 2011, Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords was shot in the head at a gathering at a grocery story in Tucson. Six people died during the incident, and 13 others, including Giffords, were wounded.
Logically, that should have caused the legislature to enact stronger gun control measures in order to prevent further occurrences. That would be logical, but you're forgetting that we are talking about the Arizona legislature.
True to form, in April of 2011, governor Jan Brewer signed legislation that made the Colt Single Action Army revolver that official state firearm. Besides Arizona, there are 7 other states that have official firearms.
Even the Sandy Hook shooting in 2012 didn't spur the passage of stricter gun laws. It actually fell to the students in Parkland, Florida to make a difference, and it got them on the cover or TIME magazine in April of 2018.
