On Wednesday, July 2, the Citizens Clean Elections Commission and the Children's Action Alliance will be hosting a candidate forum, which will include the Arizona House and Senate candidates running in Legislative District 26. We are hoping to have a strong showing from the pro-gun community to ensure that our voice is heard and that we have a clear understanding of where the candidates stand on Second Amendment issues. Please take the time to attend the forum, which will be held at the Nanini Branch Library at 7300 N. Shannon Road in Tucson from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
Invited House candidates are Trent Humphries, Vic Williams and Marilyn Zerull - invited Senate candidates are Pete Hershberger and Al Melvin. While serving in the state house, State Representative Pete Hershberger repeatedly voted against Arizona’s law-abiding gun owners. Most recently Representative Hershberger voted against two pro-gun bills: House Bill 2629, the defensive display measure, and House Bill 2630, which would have reduced the penalty for carrying a concealed weapon to a petty offense.It's important we hold our politicians accountable, so please take the time to attend the candidate forum and let Representative Hershberger know you disapprove of his attacks on Arizona’s gun owners.
