Last night, Arizona Governor Jan Brewer signed House Bill 2457 into law. This legislation will allow hunters to carry a handgun for self-defense while in the field. This important hunter protection bill passed the state Senate by a 21 to 7 vote on April 4 and passed in the House by a 54 to 4 vote on March 5. Sponsored by state Representative Brenda Barton (R-5), HB 2457 will allow an individual to carry an additional firearm for personal protection while hunting, as long as that firearm is not used for the taking of wildlife. With the surge in violence along Arizona’s southern border, this bill will provide hunters with the ability to adequately defend themselves from a variety of potential crimes. Thank you to Governor Brewer for signing HB 2457 into law and to state legislators who voted for it. Thank you also to NRA members for contacting their state Senator and Representative.
