ATTENTION ARIZONANS! – In my email, yesterday (Saturday, 04/30/2016)
Legislature ready to Adjourn
The Legislature has been working on the budget for the last few weeks. Committee of the Whole (COW) hearings and floor votes on budget bills are expected to occur this coming week. After the Legislature passes the budget we expect them to plow through all the remaining non-budget bills then adjourn the session by the end of the week.
This may be your last chance
to tell your legislators to pass pro-rights legislation.
If you have not sent your letters to your legislators on the bills listed below, do not wait any longer. A few mouse clicks on your part can make the difference on whether these bills pass or not. Doing nothing is the same as supporting their defeat.

HB 2081, which would prohibit checking with any federal (e.g., NICS) or state database on private property transfers, only needs to pass a Senate Third Read floor vote before being sent to the Governor. Click here to send your letter to your Senator telling them to vote for HB 2081.
HB 2338, the AzCDL-requested bill that would prohibit the governing boards of educational institutions from banning firearms on public rights of way, such as city streets and sidewalks that happen to pass through campuses, only needs to pass a Senate Third Read floor vote before being sent to the Governor. Click here to send your letter to your Senator telling them to vote for HB 2338.
HB 2524, the AzCDL-requested bill that would establish an interstate compact that restricts member states from enacting firearms transfer requirements that are more restrictive than existing federal law, only needs to pass a Senate Third Read floor vote before being sent to the Governor. Click here to send your letter to your Senator telling them to vote for HB 2524.
SB 1257, the AzCDL-requested bill that would exempt CCW permit holders from being disarmed when entering state and local government controlled property unless everyone entering is screened for weapons, only needs Senate concurrence and a Final Read Vote before being sent to the Governor. Click here to send your message telling your Senator to vote for the passage of SB 1257.
From some of your emails, there appears to be some confusion about SB 1257. Passage of SB 1257 only applies to state and local government facilities. It will not affect the existing law that allows those with valid CCW permits to carry discreetly in restaurants that serve alcohol that do not post “no weapons” signs. Click here to send your message telling your Senator to vote for the passage of SB 1257.
SB 1266, which would allow for injunctions, fines and civil suits when state agencies or local governments disregard state firearm preemption statutes, only needs to pass a House Third Read floor vote before being sent to the Governor. Click here to send your letter to your Representatives telling them to vote for SB 1266.
