GOP works hard to pass state firearm bill, doesn’t lift a finger on jobless aid

STATE CAPITOL, PHOENIX – House Minority Whip Anna Tovar released the following statement today on making the Colt Action Army Revolver the official state firearm (SB 1610), which passed the House and will be sent to the governor:

“Another day, another waste of taxpayers’ time and money at the state capitol. My family owns guns, and I’m embarrassed that state government chose to spend hours on a state gun — even brought it back on reconsideration after it was defeated — instead of changing one word in statute to ensure 20,000 Arizonans’ jobless aid isn’t cut off during tough times. This is absolutely ridiculous and offensive, and it’s even more humiliating that the weapon they chose isn’t even manufactured in Arizona. It’s time for a change.”
