Arizona: Preemption Bill Scheduled for Hearing This Week in House Committee

After passing through the Senate favorably, Senate Bill 1291, the state preemption bill, is scheduled for a hearing in the House Military Affairs and Public Safety Committee this Thursday, March 12, at 9:30 a.m. in Room HHR 5.  Senate Bill 1291, introduced by state Senator Steve Smith (R-11), 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 the members of the House Military Affairs and Public Safety Committee and politely urge them to SUPPORT Senate Bill 1291.  Committee contact information is provided below.
