Arizona: Critical Right-to-Carry Reform Measures Head to Senate Committee!

Thursday, April 24, 2008

Please Contact the Committee Members Today! 

Two critical right-to-carry reform measures are awaiting hearings in the Senate Rules Committee.  House Bill 2389, introduced by State Representative John Kavanagh (R-8), clarifies where an individual may carry a firearm visibly or concealed in a mode of transportation other than public transit. Also, House Bill 2634, sponsored by State Representative Rick Murphy (R-9), would allow for a person whose civil rights have been restored to obtain a permit to carry a concealed firearm with certain restrictions.  

Once the bills are passed out of the Senate Rules Committee, they will be debated on the Senate floor.  Please contact the members of the Senate Rules Committee today and urge them to support these critical measures!
