Arizona: Legislative Update on Gun Bills

On Wednesday, March 1, House Bill 2287 passed the Senate Government Committee with a 4-3 vote.  HB 2287 would revise the culpable mental state for the unlawful discharge of a firearm from “criminal negligence” to “intentionally, knowingly or recklessly.”  The bill will now move to the Senate Rules Committee to determine whether it is proper for consideration on the Senate floor.

Unfortunately, Senate Bill 1243 failed by a 14-16 vote on Tuesday.  SB 1243 is now dead for the 2017 legislative session, but rest assured, your NRA-ILA will be back next year to fight for the passage of this important legislation.  Sponsored by state Senator John Kavanagh (R-23), SB 1243 would have made changes to existing law and would have expanded the list of places where law-abiding gun owners can exercise their fundamental right to self-defense to include some additional public areas where certain security measures are not in place.
