Arizona: NRA-Backed Bill Clears House of Representatives


Charlotte, NC –-( Last week, the Arizona House of Representatives approved a common sense reform that would prevent the destruction of seized or surrendered firearms.

House Bill 2455, introduced by state Representative Brenda Barton (R-6), would require any firearms forfeited to or confiscated by a law enforcement agency to be sold to a Federal Firearms License (FFL) holder in exchange for money, new equipment or ammunition.  As a result, collected previously owned firearms would maintain their value and their sale to the public would help recover public funds when budgets are strained.  In a 36 to 23 vote, HB 2455 passed in the state House of Representatives and will now be assigned to a Senate committee for further consideration.

Thank you to all state Representatives who voted in favor of this pro-gun reform and to all NRA members who have contacted their state legislators in support of it.  Although HB 2455 has not been assigned to a Senate committee, now is the time to contact your state Senator and politely ask him or her to support HB 2455.  Your NRA-ILA will continue to keep you updated as more details become available.
