      Our bill was literally written by the Colt Manufacturing Co. lobbyist. It included glowing language about the Colt's significance in AZ history. Yeah, ask Native people how much they liked the Colt. During debate on the bill a legislator from Navajo Country, Albert Hale, said naming this gun an "Official Weapon" was offensive to Native Americans. Of course, he lost that argument.

        Colt was manufactured in Hartford, CT.
