Update: The Arizona Legislature adjourned early Saturday morning.
After months of budget negotiations, an agreement has finally been reached and the Legislature is set to adjourn in the very near future. House Bill 2414 has been sitting in the Senate pending action for months awaiting a vote. Please contact your state senator today and urge them to bring HB 2414 up for a vote and to support this legislation!
House Bill 2414 allows law-abiding citizens to store their loaded firearms in their locked personal vehicles while parked on school grounds. This ensures that parents are able to pick-up and drop-off students without first having to stop and unload their firearms before driving onto school grounds, or deviating from their route to park off-campus. So-called “gun-free zones” are arbitrary boundaries that only disarm law-abiding citizens and leave them defenseless while doing nothing to deter criminals.
Additionally Senate Bill 1177 was passed earlier this week and has now been sent to the Governor for his consideration. Please contact Governor Ducey and request he sign this legislation.
Senate Bill 1177 requires the Arizona Department of Public Safety to send out a renewal reminder and application to concealed weapons permit holders at least 60 days prior to the expiration of a permit.
Again, please take action to support these bills.
