Tomorrow, February 5, the Arizona House Public Safety, Military and Regulatory Affairs Committee is scheduled to consider House Bill 2103. As previously reported, HB 2103 was introduced by state Representative Kelly Townsend (R-16) and would expand eligibility for CCW permits to those persons who are 19 years of age and older with military service including those on active duty, those who have been honorably discharged or those who have been discharged under honorable conditions. This legislation is a great way to say thanks to our military but also provide for their self-defense when they have defended our nation. Please contact members of the House Public Safety, Military and Regulatory Affairs Committee and encourage them to support HB 2103. The committee members’ contact information can be found here.
Additionally, House Bill 2483 is scheduled to be heard Thursday, February 6, in the House Judiciary Committee. HB 2483, introduced by state Representative John Kavanagh (R-23), would protect the lawful discharge of a firearm on private lands from being unnecessarily restricted. Please contact members of the House Judiciary Committee and encourage them to support HB 2483. The committee members’ contact information can be found here.
