AZ law limiting emergency powers
The Arizona legislature is on the verge of passing a a bill taking away power to seize guns in an emergency, ala New Orleans.
Not a big deal in itself -- any Arizona governor who tried to do it would be flung from the Captiol roof-- but I find the opposition interesting. "Tuesday's action was criticized by Rep. Kyrsten Sinema, D-Phoenix. "It sounds a little bit like advocating or supporting those militia organizations that are interested in stockpiling weapons and taking up arms against the government," she said."

Wow. Someone needs a history lesson.

Even better, Virginia's governor just signed such a bill into law.

Looting is looting. Just because the looters are wearing theatrical supply cop suits is no reason to buy into their delusions. Recent history has cases of this happening in New Orleans.
