Important Arizona Pro-Gun Bill Scheduled to be Heard Next Week!

Friday, February 27, 2009

House Bill 2474, sponsored by State Representatives John Kavanagh (R-8) and Frank Antenori (R-30), will be heard in the House Judiciary Committee next week. 

HB 2474 would protect your right to lawfully transport and store firearms in your privately-owned locked motor vehicle while parked in publicly accessible parking lots controlled by your employer or a business you frequent. 

On Wednesday, February 18, the Tenth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals upheld an Oklahoma statute that protects the rights of employees to store firearms in locked vehicles in publicly accessible parking lots.  The proposed Arizona bill is very similar to the Oklahoma law and should withstand any similar challenges that might be launched; click here for the Oklahoma alert. 

Please call the members of the House Judiciary Committee TODAY and urge them to support HB 2474.  Contact information can be found below.
