Glick's grim prediction of economic collapse if cockfighting is banned is probably one of the many unrealistic arguments used against the dogfighting law on which the cockfighting proposition is patterned. As far as I know, it's still legal to own dogs, just illegal to exploit them for amusement or profit, the loss of which has not plunged the country into economic ruin.
As for our "illustrious" legislators, the Arizona Legislature is riddled with animal-hating Mormons, and a notorious history of cockfighting connections and good-ole-boy favoritism. These are the same individuals who are hypocritically demanding the demise of the eco/animal-aiding lottery, while illogically refusing to outlaw brutal cockfight gambling, reducing their dubious credibility to zero.
