Of Arms and the Law is a blog authored by David Hardy, Esquire, a lawyer preeminent in gun rights law. (Personally, I’m so glad he is a fellow Arizonan.)
He recently reported that the Arizona State Attorney General ruled that Tucson’s two recent gun laws violated the State’s preemption statute! It’s about time Tucson joined the rest of the Free State of Arizona. (for the uninitiated, Tucson is kinda like the Austin, Texas of Arizona. Being an hour North of the Mexican border, the city government and the county tend to lean left. Far left. And thought they could do an ‘end run’ around the Arizona State Statute precluding local legislation against firearms.
This is where Rep. Gabby Giffords was shot and former Marine Jose Guerra were murdered. The former by a nut-job, the latter by the Pima County SWAT Team holding a drug warrant.
No drugs of drug connections were ever found.
Regardless, Tucson keeps trying to bypass State law. And got slapped on the wrist for having done so.
It’s about time.
