TOMBSTONE — This Old West town, known for its legendary shootout at the OK Corral, gun-packing locals and gunfight shows, has been proclaimed “America’s Second Amendment City.”

Tombstone Mayor Dusty Escapule read the proclamation at Tuesday’s City Council meeting to a round of applause and an approving council.

“The citizens of Tombstone are accustomed to having firearms around,” Escapule said. “Just stop and look up and down Allen Street. Most of the guys are carrying a gun.”

The idea of a formal proclamation was pitched to the mayor by local business owner Gordon Anderson.

“This represents a great day in our history,” Anderson said. “Right now, we’re America’s only Second Amendment City. It fits into our past, present and future. I was very pleased to see that Mayor Escapule was able to issue the proclamation with no objections.”

Johnny Rowland, a media spokesman for Gun Owners of America — a gun advocacy organization with 1.5 million members — attended the meeting.
