Important Gun Bills to be Heard in Arizona House!

Friday, February 22, 2008

On Thursday, February 21, two bills that further protect Arizonans' Right to Keep and Bear Arms passed the Arizona House Judiciary Committee. 

House Bill 2629, sponsored by State Representative Russell Pearce (R-18), clarifies that a defensive display of a firearm is justified when a person feels that they are in physical danger and there is a need to protect themselves.  House Bill 2634, introduced by State Representative Rick Murphy (R-9), allows for a person whose civil rights have been restored to obtain a permit to carry a concealed firearm. Both bills now move to the full House for a floor vote. 

Please take the time to contact your State Representative and ask for their support.  To find your State Representative please click here.
