Arizona - House Could Vote On Gun Show Bills March 3
Saturday, March 1, 2003
Early next week, the Arizona House of Representatives will consider three bills that would impact law-abiding gun owners and sportsmen. HCR 2025, Legislative Recognition of Gun Shows, encourages Congress to protect gun shows by not accepting misinformation intended to further restrict gun shows. HB 2318 seeks to protect gun shows from further restrictions imposed by cities and counties. Finally, HB 2319 seeks to allow restaurant owners to choose whether or not to allow law-abiding citizens to carry firearms in their establishments for self defense. Please call your two representatives at (602) 542-4221 as soon as possible, as these bills may be voted on as early as Monday.
