Firearms Bills Pending Action in the Arizona Legislature

Friday, February 6, 2009

The following pro-gun bills have been introduced into the Arizona State Legislature.  Due to a budget crisis, these bills have not yet been assigned to committees, however, we encourage our members to get an early start and call their legislators in support of the following bills. 

House Bill 2174, sponsored by State Representative Frank Antenori (R-30), allows people with Right-to-Carry permits to carry a firearm on a game refuge.

Senate Bill 1113, sponsored by State Senator Jack Harper (R-04), and House Bill 2171, sponsored by State Representative Frank Antenori (R-30), both allow a person who has a valid Right-to-Carry permit to carry a firearm into restaurants where alcohol may be served and is not otherwise prohibited by posting provisions.  Though dealing with the same issue, these two bills are very different and the NRA will be watching them closely.  During the 2005 legislative session, similar restaurant carry legislation passed through the Arizona State Legislature, only to be vetoed on the desk of former Governor Janet Napolitano (D). 

House Bill 2420 has been proposed in the Arizona Legislature, but due to a budget crisis, it has not yet been assigned to a committee.  HB2420 clarifies that a Right-to-Carry permit holder may carry a gun in a closed purse while traveling in a car, without putting passengers who do not have permits in legal jeopardy.  As the law now stands in Arizona, if a Right-to-Carry permit holder is carrying a firearm concealed in a purse in a vehicle, the passengers without permits could be in violation of the law. 

Please contact your State Representative and State Senator TODAY and respectfully urge them to support these bills.  Kindly tell them these bills are critical to our Second Amendment rights and that you would like their support for HB2174, HB2420, and SB113.  Please call TODAY!

Two anti-gun bills are also pending committee assignments in the legislature.

House Bill 2386, sponsored by State Representative Edward Ableser (D-17), prohibits possession of a “deadly weapon”, including a firearm, at colleges or universities.  

Senate Bill 1004, sponsored by State Senator Jim Waring (R-07), makes it illegal to possess a vehicle with a secret compartment.  This is very dangerous to firearm owners as the compartment has to be designed to hide contents from law enforcement, but the intent can be inferred from a firearm being contained in this compartment.  There is no grandfather clause for vehicles that people currently already possess.  This law blames the tool rather than the user.     

Please contact your State Representative and State Senator and urge them to oppose HB2386 and SB1004!  Contact information for your State Representative can be found by clicking here.  To find contact information for your State Senator, please click here.
