The (Former) State of The State

NOT The State of The Union…

David Hardy (Gun Rights Attorney extraordinaire – who lives in AZ!) reminds us of the Days of Yore…

From the Journal of the (Arizona) House of Representatives, 1933, p.167:

At 10:21 AM, the Sergeant-at-Arms announced His Excellency the Governor of Arizona, who addressed the legislature as follows:

“Mr. Speaker, Gentlemen of the Senate, House, and citizens of the State of Arizona:

I am not here this morning with a .45-90, or any malice of any kind in my heart….”

Can you imagine if a current governor (or President) addressed a legislature in such a manner, today?
