Arizona: Governor Ducey Signs Important Pro-Gun Legislation!

This morning, Governor Doug Ducey signed two important pro-gun bills, Senate Bill 1266 and House Bill 2338.  SB 1266 is an important bill which ensures consistency in gun laws throughout the state by strengthening the state’s current preemption statutes.  HB 2338 would prevent educational institutions from adopting policies that would prohibit individuals from lawfully possessing or carrying a firearm in their vehicle (means of transportation) or on their person, on a public right-of-way. 

Governor Ducey’s signing of these two bills was preceded by his signing of House Bill 2224 last month.  HB 2224 prohibits the state and any political subdivision from levying a fee, tax, assessment or other financial encumbrance on the transfer of a firearm between two private parties who are not prohibited under state or federal law.  By signing HB 2224 into law, Governor Ducey has reaffirmed that private citizens who are not prohibited from owning and possessing firearms have the right to conduct infrequent transfers without government intrusion.

This morning, Governor Ducey also announced his veto of House Bill 2524 which would create a “Uniform Firearm Transfer Compact.”  Governor Ducey states: “I see no reason for Arizona to tie ourselves to other states’ decisions on public policy relating to the transfer of firearms.  We know what’s best for our state, and I trust the citizens of Arizona and their elected leaders to continue to make wise decisions to protect our Second Amendment rights, whenever and wherever those rights are infringed.”

Please thank Governor Ducey for supporting your Second Amendment rights by signing these pro-gun bills.  Also, please thank the legislators who voted in support of these bills and worked tirelessly to ensure their passage through the legislature.
