There's a lesson here, someplace

Out in Arizona, one group of jackasses has legally taken up arms to deter the crimes of various foreign jackasses. This marks the first instance of Mexican nationals crossing into our county to see the donkey show.

The Constitution supports the right of American citizens to bare arms. It also supports their right to think whatever jackassery they want to believe. And, it supports the rights of the media to fasten upon whatever negative aspects they can find on the side they don't like, and paint everybody with the same brush.

And of course, they'll take any opportunity they can find to misinterpret gun laws.

The patrols have been occurring on public land, and militia members have no real restrictions on their weaponry because of Arizona's loose gun laws.

This amounts to the same thing as all the registered guns you hear about on cop shows. Verbal chicanery to make people believe in nonexistent laws. Arizona does have favorable carry laws, but there's nothing legal there that isn't legal in any other free state. Just because D.C., wait, I mean Chicago, err, places that have enacted unconstitutional laws don't allow things doesn't make Arizona's laws "loose". Unless you're comparing them to the gun laws in, say, Nazi Germany or China.
