Don’t like the idea of hand grenades in elementary schools? Then stay out of Arizona. Yesterday, the Arizona House of Representatives voted for a firearm free-for-all, passing a bill which will let people “carry weapons — including guns, grenades, rockets, mines and sawed-off shotguns — into schools, polling places and nuclear plants if they claim they’re only trying to protect themselves.”
The legislation was the brainchild of Rep. Doug Quelland (R-Phoenix).
The problem? Quelland never actually read the legislation before pulling together support to get it passed. In an interview, Quelland said “he had no idea the legislation, crafted by constituents he wouldn’t identify, was so broad that it would provide a catchall exemption in the state’s weapons laws.”
