Urgent! The Arizona Senate & House Needs To Hear From You Today!

Friday, June 26, 2009

Time Is Running Out – Please Call and Email Your Senator & Representatives Immediately!

There are only a few days left before the 2009 Arizona legislative session is over, so keep the calls and emails going! 

 

ARIZONA STATE SENATE UPDATE!

 

On Thursday, June 25, the Arizona State Senate Retirement and Rural Development Committee passed House Bill 2474 by a vote of 4 to 2.  The bill will now head to the Senate Rules Committee and then it will be voted on by the Committee of the Whole.  Senator John Huppenthal attempted to not only weaken the bill with a hostile amendment but threatened to walk out of committee, which would have prevented the committee from having a quorum.  We were able to defeat Senator Huppenthal’s anti-gun amendment, but he plans to bring it up again when it is voted on by the Committee of the Whole.  

 

HB2474, sponsored by State Representatives John Kavanagh (R-8) and Frank Antenori (R-30), would permit a law-abiding individual to store their firearms in their locked motor vehicle while parked on a publicly accessible parking lot controlled by their employer or a business they frequent.   This bill will protect your right to keep a firearm in your car if you choose to hunt or target shoot before or after work.  HB2474 would also allow an individual to keep a firearm in their vehicle for self-defense during their commute to and from work.

 

Please contact your State Senator by phone and email to respectfully urge them to support HB2474 with only the Gould drafted and NRA supported amendments.   Contact information for your State Senator can be found by clicking here

 

It is important that you also contact Senator Huppenthal and politely inform him that you oppose any amendments that will weaken HB 2474 and urge him not to bring up his amendment again.  Senator Huppenthal can be reached by phone at (602) 926-5261, by fax at (602) 417-3257, or via email at jhuppenthal@azleg.gov.

 

Please take a moment to call Senator Rebecca Rios, a pro-gun Democrat, and thank her for fighting to protect your Second Amendment rights.  Her vote helped to keep HB 2474 alive. Senator Rios can be reached by phone at  (602) 926-5685, by fax at (602) 417-3167 or via email at rrios@azleg.gov.

 

The word is the Senate will be working on Saturday, June 27.  This could be an opportunity to personally tell your Senator how important these bills are to you.  In order to confirm the Senate is working Saturday, please call the main number at (602) 926-3559 or Toll Free at 1-800-352-8404.  The address to the capitol is 1700 W. Washington St. and there is free parking adjacent to it.

 

ARIZONA STATE HOUSE UPDATE!

 

Also, three NRA-supported bills passed out of their respective committees in the House.  SB1168 is expected to be voted on by the Committee of the Whole sometime today, June 26.  SB1113 and SB1243 are now heading to the House Rules Committee and then they will be voted on by the Committee of the Whole.

 

Senate Bill 1113, sponsored by State Senator Jack Harper (R-4), would give concealed carry permit holders the right to take concealed handguns into restaurants that serve alcohol, provided they are not consuming.

 

Senate Bill 1168, sponsored by State Senator Russell Pearce (R-18), identical to House Bill 2474, would permit a law-abiding individual to store their firearms in their locked motor vehicle while parked on a publicly accessible parking lot controlled by their employer or a business they frequent.  This bill will protect your right to keep a firearm in your car if you choose to hunt or target shoot before or after work.  SB1168 would also allow an individual to keep a firearm in their vehicle for self-defense during their commute to and from work.

 

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.

 

It is urgent you contact your State Representatives by phone and email to urge them to vote to support SB1113, SB1168 and SB1243 on the floor in their current forms.  Respectfully, let your Representatives know that a vote for a hostile amendment on ANY NRA-supported bill is a vote against the Second Amendment!  Contact information for your State Representative can be found by clicking here
