    Travel Icon Says He'll Avoid Arizona Because of Gun Laws

    Friday, August 21, 2009
    Associated Press

    PHOENIX Travel icon Arthur Frommer says he won't be spending his tourism dollars at the Grand Canyon, or anywhere else in Arizona, because the state's laws allow people he described as "thugs" and "extremists" to openly carry firearms.

    The author of budget-travel guides said on his blog Wednesday that he was "shocked beyond measure" by reports that protesters openly carried guns and rifles outside a Phoenix building where President Barack Obama spoke on Monday.

    Frommer says he won't personally travel in a state where civilians carry loaded weapons as a means of political protest.

    Phoenix Mayor Phil Gordon says he spoke with Frommer Thursday and invited him to visit the city to clear up any possible misconceptions about safety.
