    PHOENIX — Travel icon Arthur Frommer says he won't be spending his tourism dollars at the Grand Canyon, or anywhere else in Arizona, because the state's laws allow people he described as "thugs" and "extremists" to openly carry firearms.
    The author of budget-travel guides said on his blog Wednesday that he was "shocked beyond measure" by reports that protesters openly carried guns and rifles outside a Phoenix building where President Barack Obama spoke on Monday.
    Frommer says he won't personally travel in a state where civilians carry loaded weapons as a means of political protest.
    Phoenix Mayor Phil Gordon says he spoke with Frommer Thursday and invited him to visit the city to clear up any possible misconceptions about safety.

    Maybe he is trying to become an icon with more pub because if I saw his face I might know who he is other wise I've never heard of him.

    How does he avoid those big old nasty guns in NY, Chicago, Dallas, Houston and all the other Megopolises where gangbangers and zombies reside and rule the streets after sundown ? :texas:

    Thank God.

    Now I can go to Arizona. I haven't been going to Arizona because of my dislike of Arthur Frommer. Now that he's not going I can go.

    Thanks Arthur.

    Don't go to Arizona! Proud law abiding Americans live there. They must protect themselves from mexian kidnappers and obama.

    So I guess that limits his travels to Wisconsin and Illinois, since the other 48 states issue permits of some kind or don't require them at all. Granted, not many are open-carry states, and some are 'may issue' states that make permits hard to get, but there would be gun carrying citizens pretty much all over the country.

    What kind of job description is "travel icon" anyway? :gotme:
