Arizona: State House Committee to Hear Personal Protection While Hunting Legislation Next Week

Thursday, February 9, 2012

House Bill 2457, sponsored by Brenda Barton (R-5), would allow an individual to carry an additional firearm for personal protection while hunting, as long as that firearm is not used for the taking of wildlife.  This bill simply allows hunters the ability to adequately defend themselves from a variety of potential outdoor crimes.  HB 2457 is expected to be heard by the state House Energy and Natural Resources Committee this Monday, February 13, and needs your support! 

The committee will also be considering an amendment to HB 2457 that would clarify the language and add a penalty for taking wildlife with the use of a legally possessed firearm not authorized to take wildlife. 

Please call AND e-mail members of the state House Energy and Natural Resources Committee TODAY and ask them to support HB 2457 with the proposed amendment!
