It's not guns; it's immature owners

By Phil Boas
Arizona Republic Editorial Page Editor

Firearm zealots who troop into department stores with assault weapons help crystallize what's wrong with guns in America.  It's not the guns.  It's the people who own them.  I don't worry about the responsible gun owner.  I worry about that guy in Target, that strutting cock-of-the-walk who lacks the emotional maturity and good judgment to possess anything so significant as a gun.

Gazette Blog Editor's Note: Did you know The Arizona Republic now includes USA Today - FREE!

That's right.  You get the Republic and USA Today delivered to your Rim Country doorstep seven days a week.  You get the big Sunday paper, state and national sports, the Friday movie section, the Wednesday food section, hundreds of dollars in coupons, the Bashas', Safeway and WalMart grocery inserts, and now USA Today.

If you've got more money than you know what to do with, you can keep reading the Payson Roundup for Mayor Kenny's latest empty promise.  But if how you spend your money matters, your best newspaper deal - far and away - is The Arizona Republic and USA Today.
