How sweet. Utah has added another state symbol to the list (why do Americans do this?). This time, it's a gun. Not even a hunting rifle. A Browning (so-called because of it's effect on the victim's undercrackers) semi-automatic pistol. Because when the rest of the US comes for its multiple wives, Utah's got to be ready?
I have readers in Utah. Is happiness a warm gun? Or is this plain crazy? Will kids be taught a list in school? State cute bird (gull), state fluffy animal (bee), state murder weapon?
Reminder: gun murders in the US last year - almost 10,000. 16204 murders in total. So while the NRA's right that 'guns don't kill people, people do', it's pretty clear that they prefer to do it with a gun. Even in Utah (It's the orange one above red Arizona). But now they can do it patriotically.
