Bill would make Colt Arizona’s official firearm

A Colt revolver that was popular in the West in the late 19th Century would be designated as Arizona’s official state firearm under a new bill introduced in the Legislature.

The bill honoring the Colt single-action Army revolver was introduced Monday for consideration Tuesday by the Senate Appropriations Committee.

The bill’s co-sponsors include 43 senators and representatives — just under half of the 90-member Legislature.
