Question of the day

From AZCentral.com -
Dealer accidentally fires gun, injures 2 at gun show

A woman and a girl received minor injuries when a gun dealer inadvertently fired a loaded handgun during a gun show in Mesa late Saturday morning, police said.

Police responded to the Mesa Convention Center about 11:30 a.m. to a call of a shot being fired during a gun show, said Det. Mike Melendez, a police spokesman.

Investigators learned that a presenter at the gun show brought a loaded gun into the event, which is not permitted, Melendez said.

Could somebody explain something to me?

How is it that the Republicans in the lege think that guns are safe enough to force them into schools, bars, and others' private property, all places where a majority of the people present will have no clue about handling dangerous weapons, yet people in a place where the the vast majority (if not all) of the folks present are experts on the safe handling of weapons are in immediate danger from those very same "safe" weapons?

Welcome to Arizona, the place where blind ideology trumps stark reality.
