Govs. Doug Ducey and Jerry Brown Are Fighting Over Guns

Posted By on Mon, Dec 7, 2015 at 1:00 PM

Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey isn't happy that California Gov. Jerry Brown criticized Arizona's lax gun restrictions. AP reports:

Asked if stricter gun control laws were warranted, as some activists have argued, the fourth-term Democrat replied, “California has some of the toughest gun control laws of any state. And Nevada and Arizona are wide open, so that’s a gigantic back door through which any terrorist can walk.”

His remarks led to a statement by Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey, who said Brown’s comments politicized a tragedy and were “out of bounds.”

“Not only will we be ignoring Gov. Brown’s advice, but I call on him to retract his incredibly thoughtless and ill-advised comments,” Ducey said.
