Firearm Legislation at Arizona Governor’s Desk!

Tuesday, June 26, 2007

Please Contact Governor Napolitano Today!

Senate Bill 1251 requires government entities in Arizona to comply with long-standing state statute that requires them to provide for temporary and secure storage of firearms when they prohibit citizens from possessing firearms in government operated public establishments or at public events.  State law currently requires that firearms must be available for immediate retrieval on exit from the establishment or event.  For too long now, many state agencies and local government entities throughout Arizona have arrogantly ignored this law intended to allow citizens to protect themselves and avoid storing firearms in vehicles where they are vulnerable to theft.

SB 1251 clarifies firearms storage procedures that must be followed by government entities when they prohibit firearms possession.  It prohibits the recording of firearm serial numbers and keeping records on citizens who request that their firearms be stored.  It also states in no uncertain terms that firearms possession may not be prohibited if government entities do not comply with the specified temporary storage requirements.

Finally, SB 1251 states that the Department of Public Safety (DPS) may not charge concealed weapons permit applicants a fee in excess of $65.  Existing law has allowed the DPS Director to charge a “reasonable fee” for permit application processing.

SB 1251, sponsored by State Senators Chuck Gray (R-19), Linda Gray (R-10), Karen Johnson (R-18), and State Representatives Rick Murphy (R-9) and Jerry Weiers (R-12) is currently awaiting Governor Janet Napolitano’s (D) consideration.  

Please contact Governor Napolitano and urge her to sign SB 1251.  The Governor can be reached by calling 1-800-253-0883 or visit http://www.azgovernor.gov/ to send an email message.

Please keep checking www.NRAILA.org for updates on this legislation and other firearms related issues in Arizona and around the nation.
