Arizona: Contact Governor Today in Support of Two Pro-Gun Reforms

Friday, April 26, 2013

Call Governor Brewer at 602-542-4331 in support of House Bills 2326 and 2455

Two pro-gun bills of critical importance to gun owners and sportsmen are awaiting Governor Jan Brewer’s consideration.  It is important that Governor Brewer hears from you TODAY that you want the following bills to be signed into law:

House Bill 2326, sponsored by state Representative Eddie Farnsworth (R-12), would provide meaningful privacy protections for firearm owners.  HB 2326 would restrict the ability of any political subdivision from requiring or retaining a record in any form, whether permanent or temporary, of any identifying information of a person who owns, possesses, purchases, sells or transfers a firearm.  In other parts of the country, anti-gun media outlets have abused their privileges under the Freedom of Information Act and have jeopardized the safety of law-abiding citizens by publishing the names and addresses of registered gun owners.  Contrary to their claims, these media elites have not increased public safety and have instead simply provided a roadmap for criminals to use for their next burglary and firearm theft.  HB 2326 would prevent this from happening in Arizona.

House Bill 2455, sponsored by state Representative Brenda Barton (R-6), would prohibit government-sponsored destruction of seized or surrendered firearms.  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 that are collected would maintain their value and their sale to the public would help recover public funds when budgets are strained.

Thank you to the state legislators who voted for these important pro-gun reforms and to NRA members who have contacted their lawmakers in support of them.  Please contact Governor Brewer and politely ask that she sign House Bills 2326 and 2455 and into law.

Governor Jan Brewer:

Phoenix Office: (602) 542-4331

Tucson Office: (520) 628-6580
