    Although I agree that fighting for change is good, I will never endorse breaking the law. I wonder what sort of immunity from prosecution state senators have from prosecution when they are in session. Like on the federal level, some states provide immunity to their law makers on misdemeanor offenses. It sounds like carrying in the AZ senate building may be an unspoken common practice.

    Here in VA you can carry right into the governor's office if you have a carry permit. As a matter of fact the only incident we have had in recent memory was a legislator who "accidentally" fired his legally carried Kel-Tec into his office door. We have several VCDL lobby days every legislative session where we attend fully armed, some even open carry.

    Yet another example of how a well-armed citizenry can help keep the lid on insanity. While a lone gunman could easily come in and cap the governor or anyone else, the likelihood that such an action could turn into a 32-person death spree is much reduced. Kudos to Virginians for seeing so clearly. May the rest of the people around the country awaken from slumber soon, 'cause it's going to get worse before it gets better.

    I'm not a big fan of the governor. Most people outside of the big cities aren't. Every single term, more pro-gun items cross her desk. Maybe she should take that as a sign.

    The Senator sounds like a pretty smart lady. Too bad she isn't a little more well informed about weapons. An 8 shot .22 revolver? She can do better than that!
