Arizona: Pro-Gun Bills Pass Through Committees

Senate Bill 1291, the state preemption bill introduced by state Senator Steve Smith (R-11), passed through both the Senate Committee on Federalism, Mandates and Fiscal Responsibility as well as the Senate Committee on Public Safety, Military and Technology.  The Rules committees further passed the bill as proper for consideration and it will now head to the Committee of the Whole on Monday, February 23rd, before receiving a vote on the Senate floor.  As previously reported, SB 1291 will improve the state firearms preemption law to ensure consistency throughout the Grand Canyon State.  This is done by providing a mechanism to declare unlawful regulations null and void in addition to providing penalties for knowing and willful violations by localities.

SB 1291 is a much-needed protection and will ensure compliance with existing state law.  Please contact your state Senator and politely urge him or her to SUPPORT Senate Bill 1291.

House Bill 2320, introduced by state Representative Brenda Barton (R-6), recently passed the House Committee on Military Affairs and Public Safety as well as the Committee on Rules.  HB 2320 makes changes to existing law by allowing those with a valid permit to carry concealed at public establishments or events where certain security measures are not in place.  This bill has moved through the House Rules Committee and is now awaiting consideration by the House.

Please contact your state Representative and politely urge him or her to SUPPORT House Bill 2320.

House Bill 2527, introduced by state Representative Anthony Kern (R-20), passed the House and is scheduled to be heard in the Senate Committee on Government.  HB 2527 makes a technical correction to the Arizona Revised Statute by adding the word “transfer” to the existing language.  By making this addition, the statute now prohibits any agency or political subdivision of the state from enacting or implementing any law, rule or ordinance relating to the possession, transfer, or storage of firearms other than the state legislature. 

Your NRA-ILA will continue to keep you updated when more information is available.
