“There’s a winner in the race to become the first gun-crazy state to have it’s own official state firearm — and it’s not Arizona.” True dat. And you can expect to hear more of the “Utah is nuts” meme as word spreads that The Beehive State has adopted John Moses Browning’s magnum opus as their state firearm. “Utah Governor Gary Herbert signed a bill designating the Browning model M1911 automatic pistol as the official state firearm,” the phoenixnewtimes.com reports, “leaving Arizona in the hunt for — at the very best — a silver medal in the race for symbolic expressions of Second Amendment silliness.” Can you imagine the hue and cry if The Grand Canyon State had pipped Utah at the post? The state where Jared Lee Lougher’s happy-stick-equipped Glock unleashed so much death and destruction, and, thus, new moves for gun control—sorry, safety? The mind boggles.
