Today and tomorrow, two senate committees will consider bills that will protect and enhance Second Amendment rights in Arizona. Please use the Request to Speak application (RTS) on the Arizona State Legislature website to ask them to SUPPORT Senate Bills 1331 and 1109.
Today, starting 2:00PM, in the Senate Education Committee:
Senate Bill 1331 exempts law-abiding parents with carry permits from the ban on possessing firearms when on the grounds of a school in which they have a student enrolled. In addition, it also prohibits governing bodies of education institutions from adopting or enforcing policies against such lawful carry or transporting. This ensures that law-abiding citizens can defend themselves and their loved ones. So-called “gun-free zones” are arbitrary boundaries that only disarm these law-abiding citizens and leave them defenseless while doing nothing to deter criminals.
Tomorrow, starting 8:00AM, in the Senate Judiciary Committee:
Senate Bill 1109 amends Arizona’s definition of “Prohibited weapon” to no longer include suppressors. Current state law already exempts suppressors that are possessed, manufactured, or transported in compliance with federal law, which tightly regulates them.
Again, please use the Request to Speak application (RTS) on the Arizona State Legislature website to ask the committees to SUPPORT these bills.
