Two NRA-backed Bills Progressing in the Arizona Senate

Wednesday, April 21, 2010

On Wednesday, April 21, two NRA-supported bills passed through the Senate Committee of the Whole (COW) and will move on to third and final reading.

House Bill 2629, as amended, was added after we learned that Mojave County was registering guns when someone would check their firearm at a government building.  These government buildings were recording owner information and serial numbers of firearms.  HB 2629 will make the current actions of Mojave County illegal, and if they continue to illegally register guns, it will allow a private citizen to bring suit against the county. Once the bill passes final reading, it will return to the house for concurrence before it can be sent to the Governor for her consideration.

Also passing in the Senate COW was HCR 2008, Arizona’s Right to Hunt and Fish Constitutional Amendment.  After the final reading, this resolution will be sent to the Secretary of State’s office to be signed as a ballot referendum.  After which, if approved by the voters, HCR 2008 would make Arizona one of nearly a dozen states with such a constitutional protection.  

Please continue contacting your State Senator and respectfully urge him or her to support HB 2629 and HCR2008.  Contact information can be found here.
