Arizona Lawmakers Who'll Make Your Jaw Drop
This two-term Peoria Republican came rushing to the aid of victimized gun owners by proposing to weaken Shannon’s Law, which makes it a felony to negligently fire a weapon inside city limits. Rivero apparently thinks we have an epidemic of gun owners who are being branded as felons after they accidentally fire their guns. “How many miscarriages of justice are acceptable?" he asked his colleagues in January. Unfortunately, he couldn’t name even one. That’s because prosecutors don’t go after people whose guns accidently discharge. They go after the yahoos who believe no celebration is complete until they act like total idiots and fire off their guns into the city skies, never mind that what goes up must, well, you know. Fortunately, Senate President Steve Yarbrough, R-Chandler, killed Rivero’s bill, saying, “It’s important to have this law in place to deter folks from firing weapons in these circumstances, even accidentally."
