It used to be a sort of hobby for Arizona legislators.
They’d hear about some ungodly liberal thing going on in Bisbee, Tucson or Tempe, and they’d pass a law to prevent any Arizona city from doing it anymore.
Tucson held a gun-buyback program in January 2013 and moved to destroy the guns, for example. That spring, the Legislature quickly passed and the governor signed a bill mandating that cities resell any precious guns received in a buyback, not destroy them.
