Other Official State Items We Need in Arizona

In Current Events on March 25, 2011 at 17:50

Arizona Now has a state gun. It’s the Colt Single Action Army Revolver the state firearm. While that’s a great historic firearm, it’s tame next to today’s standards. (link)

What we really need for the state gun is the Pfeifer .600 Nitro Express Magnum. (Learn more here) Not only is this gun the most powerful handgun on the market, it costs more than $17,000 in 2008 dollars. Since the Arizona is all about helping the rich with tax cuts and arresting the unclean, shouldn’t the state gun be one only the rich can afford?

We have a state gun in Arizona, and that’s what’s important.

States have flags, official flowers, official animals, official plants, official foods and other official items.

However, we need some other bills creating new official state items to represent an over changing state.

1. We need an official state torture. I suggest water boarding while listening to Glenn Beck and eating a Joe Arpaio month old baloney sandwich. Any torture can be our state torture, for they are all good.

2. Atlas shrugged can be the official state book and the Bible can be the official non-fiction book.

3.  Official state motto: “Arizona for Arizonans, the White Ones!”

4. The official state disease: Valley Fever.

5. The State Missile: The Cruise Missile made right here in Arizona.

6. The official state border crossing; changes weekly.

7. Official State Religion: Mormonism

8. The Official State Prison: Maricopa Country Jail or where ever Joe Arpaio is currently working.

9. Official state lost job: construction worker.

10. Official Endangered Species: The Moderate Republican. There are a few left, but they are in hiding waiting for the other gavel to drop.

Please comment and add your own. It’s easy and you won’t be “registering”. You might even win a prize.

  2. I want New York to have an official state weapon, too. The taser?

    • Whatever gun they shot Amadou Diallo with will do, nes pas? At least it will work for the gun fetishists.

      Thanks Leeza.

  3. LOL!!!! Great Satire! I feel sort of like Arizona has just out done Texas with the wild west thing. Amazing.

    • Wes,

      I think Russell Pearce and the rest of the state legislature would love your comment. They want to be bigger than Texas. We already have a higher drop our rate, and higher unemployment. Now, if we could only get more people on death row than Texas…

  4. Ah Tex, while I don’t wish to pop your bubble, but that Big Revolver is a knockoff of a Colt Single Action Army. That said I would not wish to have any revolver chambered for more than a 44 magnum or a 45 Colt.

  5. At a cost of 16 grand for the revolver and 40 dollar per “obsolete” round, “cajones” is not the word I would use to describe the person who special ordered it nor the company who made it for him.

    • It’s actually mass produced and you can order one yourself. Just click and follow the links Jake.

      Yes, it is a waste all right.

      • I followed your links and did my own research too Tex, there is but one Pfeifer .600 Nitro Express Magnum and it’s not mass produced. Yes you can buy one if you have the cash to have one custom made, but if you have the cash you can have anything made. Now I have seen some Thompson Contenders chambered in the round but we are talking about a single shot gun with interchangeable barrels.

        • Jake,

          I guess I didn’t mean “mass produced” exactly, but I didn’t realize you had to custom order it. I’ll stick with a sig since it’s the only hand gun I have any familiarity with and it works well.
