A pro-gun bill that would prohibit government-sponsored destruction of seized or surrendered firearms is on the way to the Arizona State Senate floor and needs your help. House Bill 2455, introduced by state Representative Brenda Barton (R-6), will be up for consideration on April 1.
HB 2455 would require any firearms forfeited to or confiscated by a law enforcement agency to be sold to a Federal Firearms License (FFL) holder in exchange for money, new equipment or ammunition. As a result, previously owned firearms collected would maintain their value and their sale to the public would help recover public funds when budgets are strained. In a 36 to 23 vote, HB 2455 passed in the Arizona House of Representatives and is eligible for the Senate’s final approval after passing in the Senate Public Safety Committee by a 4 to 1 vote. However, state Senators need to hear from you TODAY that this bill is important to their constituents.
It is essential that we protect our Second Amendment rights and end government-sponsored destruction of seized or surrendered firearms. Your state Senator needs to hear from you TODAY or this pro-gun legislation may fail. Politely insist that they vote in support of HB 2455 and stop public resources and taxpayer funds from being used to destroy firearms.
