Arizona Gun Bills Moving – Hearings Scheduled

Arizona NRA-ILA

Catalina, AZ –-( Legislators have until February 6, 2012, to file their bills so many are still busy drafting legislation that affects your liberty. Meanwhile a few pro-rights bills have been scheduled for hearings next week.

  • SB 1077 is scheduled for a hearing in the Senate National Resources and Transportation Committee on Monday, January 23, 2012. This bill would specifically exempt from the state lands trespass statute the “lawful possession or discharge of a firearm while hunting, while target shooting, in self-defense or in defense of another.”
  • HB 2095 is scheduled for a hearing in the House Government Committee on Tuesday, January 24, 2012. This is AzCDL-requested legislation that would limit the restrictions that a Home Owner Association (HOA) can place on firearms.
  • HJR 2001 is scheduled for a hearing in the House Military Affairs and Public Safety Committee on Wednesday, January 25, 2012. This resolution opposes the use of an international force on American soil that seeks to enforce any United States treaty that has not been ratified by the United States Senate.

AzCDL representatives will be monitoring these committee hearings and testifying if necessary. At this stage, we do not foresee any problems or a need to send emails to committee members.

Stay tuned! When critical legislation moves, we will notify you via these Alerts.

About Arizona Citizens Defense League:

AzCDL believes that the emphasis of gun laws should be on criminal misuse and that law-abiding citizens should be able to own and carry firearms unaffected by unnecessary laws or regulations. AzCDL was founded by a group of local activists who recognized that a sustained, coordinated, statewide effort was critical to protecting and expanding the rights of law-abiding gun owners. As a like-minded coalition of activists, the AzCDL founders were instrumental in the successful passage of the first major improvement to Arizona’s CCW (concealed carry) laws since they were instituted in 1994.
