Arizona: Senate Judiciary Committee Passes Campus Personal Protection Bill!

Tuesday, February 7, 2012

Contact your state Senator Today!

Yesterday, the Arizona Senate Judiciary Committee passed Senate Bill 1474 by a 5 to 3 vote.  This bill, sponsored by state Senator Ron Gould (R-3), is right-to-carry reform legislation which would enable law-abiding citizens to defend themselves while on the grounds of higher education campuses.  SB 1474 will now be sent to the Senate floor for a vote.  Please call AND e-mail your state Senator and encourage him or her to support this important personal protection legislation!

SB 1474 would prohibit a public university, college, or community college from adopting or enforcing any policy prohibiting the lawful carry of a concealed weapon by a valid concealed permit holder, or regulating the lawful transportation or storage of a firearm on the grounds of the institution.  This self-defense reform would simply enable those legally allowed by state and federal law to carry for self-defense to do so on a college or university campus.  The NRA fully supports this bill as introduced, and commends the effort by the Arizona legislature to curtail an invisible and arbitrary boundary relating to where a person can lawfully carry a firearm for self-defense.

SB 1474 recognizes a robust right-to-carry, while adequately addressing concerns over clarity and scope that were raised on this issue last year.  While this bill would restrict the ability of certain higher education institutions to ban concealed carry on the grounds of these institutions, it would enable a public university, college, or community college to adopt and enforce a prohibition or restriction on the carry or transport of a weapon within any building.  However, institutions may restrict carry only if proper notice is posted and secure storage for the weapon is provided at the entrance to these buildings.

Forward this alert to your family, friends and fellow gun-owners in Arizona and urge them to also call AND e-mail their state Senator to SUPPORT SB 1474.
