A Point of Geographic Clarification

You've most likely heard about elitist big-city mayor Michael Bloomberg hiring private investigators in Arizona to go to gun shows and see how many guns they could buy after telling the dealers private sellers "I probably wouldn't pass a background check" (answer: a lot). Jan Brewer is predictably steamed, and took the opportunity to see how many times she could string "Arizona," "Constitution," and "Second Amendment" into sentences (answer: at least two).

The official response from the Crossroads of the West gun show people insisted that they are completely law-abiding, and then added a slightly baffling geographic twist. I will give you exactly one guess about where they got their verbiage.
These forays into America's heartland committing blatant acts to entrap otherwise innocent gun owners is an unlawful scheme that is created by Bloomberg's task force.
Heartland? Really? If Florida is America's Wang and Alaska is America's Ear, southern Arizona isn't exactly the heartland. We are more America's Hamstring, although America's Groin Pull should get some consideration. America's heartland. Sound familiar? You betcha.
