Where Is Wyatt Earp When You Need Him?

Ariz. Senate approves bill allowing guns in bars

Wyatt's Carefree Days Maybe Over

PHOENIX (AP) — The Arizona Senate has given final approval to a bill that would allow people with concealed weapons permits to carry a gun into a business that serves alcohol.

The 19-8 vote completes legislative action on the bill and sends it to Republican Gov. Jan Brewer. She has not said whether she will sign it, but she has long been a supporter of gun rights.

The measure has pitted powerful groups representing gun and bar owners against each other, sparking a debate about whether guns and alcohol can coexist without bloodshed.

Critics of the measure say guns and alcohol are a dangerous combination.

"We don't let people drink and drive, why should we let them drink and carry guns?" said Sen. Paula Aboud, D-Tucson, who voted against the bill.


Wyatt Cleans Up Tombstone For A Second Time

It won't be long until we will have to add Cell Phones to the First Amendment or we will have more gun rights than phone rights.

My mama always told me never put off till tomorrow people you can kill today.

In answer to 'Where was Wyatt..' Like JEB Stuart at Gettysburg, you can't be everywhere all the time.
The remark about John Henry 'Doc' Holliday's mother Alice might have come from a dime store novel.
The real Alice was a big part of Doc's early life and her story is in 'Doc Holliday's Road to Tombstone.'

The Holiday "quote" was from the movie "Tombstone" I think.

You're right about one thing, ole Doc has many more layers of legend on him than even Earp does.
