Guns are more important than forests

We live in a dry state.
A dry state in the middle of a drought.
A state where, however, anything goes with guns.
A state where the NRA seems to rule the roost.
A state where the gun lobby lives in denial.
A state where the Arizona Citizens Defense League’s League’s Charles Heller said, “I neither accept [that bullets can cause fires] nor deny it. I suppose it is theoretically possible.”
This, of course, after the May Wallow fire destroyed 18,000 acres.
A fire caused by?
An incendiary bullet.
An incendiary bullet that is intended to have a trail of sparks behind it.
An incendiary bullet that is legal in the drought-dominated dry state of Arizona.
Gotta protect the Second Amendment rights of idiots who insist in shooting bullets intended to trail fire behind them in a dry forest.
Sounds reasonable to me.
