Save This Sunday. On Daylight.

Save This Sunday. On Daylight.

At 2:00 AM this Sunday morning, people in most of the United States will set their clocks ahead one hour. Many households will also change the batteries in their smoke detectors. In Arizona, where they don’t believe in Daylight Saving Time, people mark the day by putting fresh ammunition in their handguns.

The United States observes DST beginning on the second Sunday in March; the European Union on the last Sunday in March. Tunisia, Bangladesh, and Fiji have joined Arizona and no longer observe Daylight Saving Time.  We do not know if these counties also concur with Arizona’s denial of Climate Change, Water FluoridationInternational Law, and Evolution.

There are many theories as to why Arizona rejected Daylight Saving Time. We are investigating the hypothesis that the state’s many retirees couldn’t figure out how to change the time settings on their old VHS machines.

    I assume the ammunition is to rout out illegal immigrants, you know, the guys who … mow the lawns and fix our toilets.

    Perhaps they load the ammo just to make sure it doesn’t get exported along with thousands of Arizona guns. In 2009, 1,637 guns bought in Arizona were recovered at out-of-state crime scenes. Untold thousands more hopped across the border to arm Mexican drug cartels.

    The state has also infected Mexico with DST-rejection. Sonora, the only Mexican state that does not observe Daylight Saving Time, borders Arizona.
