Ok, many great gun bills this year in AZ as discussed on other postings here.

We need to start calling now! Please contact all Representatives and Senators in AZ daily to encourage them to pass these measures.

Measures at hand:
Some of the bills aimed at loosening weapons regulations this session:

• Bills: House Bill 2307; Senate Bill 1098.

Sponsors: Rep. Nancy McLain, R-Bullhead City; Sen. Russell Pearce, R-Mesa.

Summary: Exempts any firearm or ammunition manufactured and kept in Arizona from federal regulation, including registration.
Status: Passed by House Judiciary Committee, moves to Rules Committee; Senate bill was held in Senate Judiciary Committee.

• Bills: House Bill 2347; Senate Bill 1102.

Sponsors: Rep. Frank Antenori, R-Tucson; Pearce.

Summary: Would no longer require people to get a concealed-weapon permit. Would make it legal to keep a loaded weapon in a locked vehicle on school grounds and prohibit anybody younger than 21 from carrying a concealed firearm.

Status: House bill referred to House Military Affairs and Public Safety Committee and the House Judiciary Committee; Senate bill passed Senate Judiciary Committee, moves to Senate Rules.

• Bills: House Bill 2543; Senate Bill 1168.

Sponsors: Rep. David Gowan, R-Sierra Vista; Pearce.

Summary: Extends restrictions on local governments from regulating firearms and ammunition to include the purchase, acquisition, storage, licensing or registration of such items. The bill also would prohibit cities and counties from banning firearms in parks.

Hey all, I know it's early to start calling on these, but many assistants that I contacted have very biased views against these bills, and I think we need all the time we have to impart our position. Please call everyone!

no need to thank.....its our civic duty to call them and tell them what we want. If we dont do that we are failing ourselves, the politicians will do what they want unless we tell them otherwise.
