They don't know the first thing about "safety"

"[Arizona] joined Utah and Alaska as having the worst gun-safety laws in the nation, according to the Brady Campaign To Prevent Gun Violence."

We view such a ranking from the Brady Campaign, an organization whose (poorly-concealed) ultimate goal is the banning of all privately-owned firearms in America under the guise of "safety", as a badge of honor.

Arizona has a lot of pools and bathtubs as well and lots of children unfortunately drown in them each year, many more than are killed by firearms.  We don't see the Brady people calling for the criminalization of bathing and swimming, though.

Did you see the story of the woman convicted of murdering her 13 month old baby? He drowned in the tub while she was playing facebook games.

Totally no relation to this blog post, except that a bathtub was involved. ;)

One would figure that one of these days, the Brady Campaign would wake up and consider that perhaps the worst gun safety laws are....where you'll see the highest rates of death by firearm, like Washington DC and Chicago....but maybe I'm dreaming here that they'll use that degree of logic.
