Arizona: Pro-Gun Bills Need Your Full Support in Order to Pass!

Thursday, May 22, 2008

Make Your Voice Heard Today! 

House Bill 2629, a measure that would statutorily define defensive display of a firearm, has passed out of the House on Third Reading by a vote of 34 to 26 and is now headed to the Governor's desk.  It is extremely important that Governor Janet Napolitano (D) hear from NRA members as she considers the merits of this bill, which promises to benefit a large segment of the population who choose to use firearms for self-defense purposes.  HB 2629 is a much-needed fix to the current statute which leaves little room for citizens to avoid prosecution for simply displaying a firearm, which statistical data proves is more than sufficient to deter criminal attack. 

Please take the time to contact the Governor TODAY and urge her to sign HB2629 into law.  This is the first bill to reach her desk since she vetoed HB 2630, the petty offense measure, and we don't want this important legislation to meet the same fate!  The Governor can be reached by calling 1-800-253-0883 or by email at www.azgov@az.gov.    

In addition to HB 2629, other NRA supported bills are moving forward on their path to the Governor's desk.   House Bill 2634, the restoration of rights bill, was sent to the House for concurrence on Senate amendments, and House Bill 2389, the firearm transportation bill, was recommended for passage by the Conference Committee.  Senate Bill 1070, the concealed carry permit training measure and Senate Bill 1106, the lifetime concealed carry permit bill, were both granted reconsideration by the House after facing certain death just days prior, and are on their way back to the Senate for Final Reading. 

These bills are still very much in play and need your continued phone calls and emails to your elected State Legislators.  To find your State Legislators please click here.
