APPEARS IN Hunting

Important Second Amendment Legislation in Arizona!

Tuesday, February 26, 2008

Please Make Your Voice Heard Today! 

Two pieces of legislation that are of importance to Arizona NRA members are advancing in the Arizona State Legislature.  HCR 2037, sponsored by State Representative Jerry Weiers (R-12), would protect the right to hunt and fish in Arizona through a constitutional amendment. Senate Bill 1214 introduced by State Senator Karen Johnson (R-18), would allow for the carrying of firearms by concealed weapons permit holders on college and university campuses.   

HCR 2037, which is also facing its share of opposition, is slated to be heard in the House Committee on Natural Resources and Public Safety.  The adoption of a constitutional “right to hunt” will forever protect sportsmen and their way of life from the growing threat posed by well-funded environmental and animal “rights” extremists whose ultimate objective is to end all hunting. Remember that in 1991 Wayne Pacelle, the CEO of HSUS stated, “If we could shut down all sport hunting in a moment, we would.” 

SB 1214 will be heard before the full Senate in the coming days, and it will be facing opposition from the anti-gun zealots.  It is imperative that the pro-gun community make their voice heard, and show support in allowing permit holders, who are law-abiding and responsible citizens, to carry firearms for self-defense on their campuses.  This will ensure a safer environment and could deter further campus violence.   

Please make plans to attend the hearing for HCR 2037, being held on Wednesday, February 27 at 9:00am in Room HHR1. If you are unable to attend the hearing please contact the members of the House Committee on Natural Resources and Public Safety and ask them to support HCR 2037.  Committee contact information can be found here.  

Please also take the time to contact your State Senator and urge him or her to support SB1214.  To find your State Senator please click here
