Utah has become the first US state to designate an official state firearm.

The Browning M1911 joins the state fossil (allosaurus), fruit (cherry), gem (topaz), bird (sea gull) and other symbols with official designation.

The gun was designed by Utah native John Browning. The law's sponsor said it symbolised freedom and empowerment.

Opponents said it was inappropriate to glorify a firearm, citing the January mass shooting at a congresswoman's constituent event in nearby Arizona.

Guess that's one thing you can name offical state something. Good choice of gun, but there's just something weird about this...

I thought that Illinois should adopt the "Tommy gun". Also leaves open which state should pick the "Saturday night special".....

Don't they get points for converting non-believers? I can see why it could come in handy.

you see, the more guns we all have, the less likely countries with less guns will attack us.

Only in America, eh?

But anyway, we shouldn't let Utah lead the way alone. Let us also name our own State (or county/province etc) firearms.

For Official Gun of Essex; I nominate this gold-plated sawn-off: because it's loud, brash, tacky and completely unnecessary!

Seeing as the 1911 is about the greatest pistol ever, I can now safely assume:

That Utah is bearable.

There are seagulls in Utah. Seagulls ate all the insects, making it easier for the pioneers to grow crops.

Also, this is something to be expected from stupid people living in Utah.

Does anyone else think it's funny that the official fruit of a state full of virgin mormons is a cherry?

I love you =] I can't say I was very fond of you when we first started talking because you trolled the hell out of my threads, but after talking to you here I've grown very attached to you.

Yeah, write to my fanclub about it, honey.

Opponents said it was inappropriate to glorify a firearm, citing the January mass shooting at a congresswoman's constituent event in nearby Arizona.

But the constitution does it so well!

This just seems.. strange. Why do you need a state gun? Unless that gun was used to ward off a zombie invasion in said state.

DON'T MAKE ME DESTROY YOU!
