Arizona: Senate Judiciary Committee to Hear Two Pro-Gun Bills!

Friday, June 5, 2009

On Monday June 8th two very important pro-gun bills head to the Senate Judiciary Committee. It is vital that we communicate and respectfully express our desired support of these two bills.  Also, please contimue to contact your State Senator and urge him or her to support House Bill 2474.

Senate Bill 1243, sponsored by State Senator Russell Pearce (R-18), would clarify the statutory definition of defensive display of a firearm. This clarification of defensive display of a firearm is a valuable addition to your right to self-defense.

Senate Bill 1113, introduced by State Senator Jack Harper (R-4), would give customers the right to take handguns into restaurants that serve alcohol. State Senator Jack Harper (R-4), the restaurant industry, and NRA have worked to craft new language that will be used in place of the currently proposed posting requirements, which will have to be added as an amendment in committee. Over 30 states currently have restaurant carry provisions. In 2005, the Arizona legislature passed a restaurant carry provision, which was vetoed by previous Governor Janet Napolitano. Just this week, Tennessee passed legislation enabling permit holders to carry a firearm for self-defense in restaurants that serve alcohol. 

Please contact the members of the Senate Judiciary Committee and respectfully urge them to support SB 1243.  Also, please ask them to support SB 1113 with the NRA-backed amendment.  The appropriate contact information can be found below.

House Bill 2474, sponsored by State Representatives John Kavanagh (R-8) and Frank Antenori (R-30), would permit law-abiding citizens to keep a firearm locked in their privately owned vehicle when parked on their employer’s publicly accessible parking lot. HB2474 passed by an overwhelming vote in the House, 41-10-9.  Please contact your State Senators TODAY and respectfully urge them to support and vote yes on HB2474 before session comes to an end, which would kill the bill.
