Ideally, one would never need a firearm on a camping trip, but when things go very bad and you do need a gun, you need that gun “right now.”

Escaped Arizona prisoners Tracy Province and John McCluskey are reportedly accompanied by Casslyn Welch. Province and McCluskey broke out of a private prison in Arizona July 30 along with another man, Daniel Renwick. They kidnapped a pair of semi-truck drivers, according to the Associated Press, leaving them unharmed at Flagstaff. This manhunt is being ably tracked by KNXV-TV, the ABC affiliate in Phoenix that calls itself ABC15.

Authorities have linked at least one of the bad guys to a double homicide in New Mexico. The skeletal remains of Gary and Linda Haas of Tecumseh, OK were found in a burned camper several days ago. Their truck was found 100 miles west of the crime scene, in Albuquerque. Read more

===============================================

BULLETIN: Wyoming authorities announced that convicted killer Tracy Province has been captured in Meeteetse, WY about 60 miles outside of Yellowstone National Park. According to the Associated Press, authorities got a tip from a woman who actually chatted with Province on the steps of a church on Sunday, and then recognized him from a television news bulletin. When he was arrested, he was carrying a 9mm handgun and a sign that said “Casper,” suggesting that he wanted a ride to that Wyoming city. There was no immediate word on where he got the pistol.
