SB 1266, sponsored by Republican state Sen. Steve Smith, would improve the state firearms pre-emption law to ensure consistency throughout the Grand Canyon State. HB 2338would prevent educational institutions from adopting policies that would prohibit individuals from lawfully possessing or carrying a firearm in their vehicle (means of transportation) on a public right-of-way.
Additionally, HB 2446, sponsored by Republican state Rep. David Livingston, makes necessary revisions to Arizona’s current definition of a “prohibited weapon” to exclude all firearms or devices that are legally possessed in compliance with the National Firearms Act (NFA). And HB 2524 would create a “Uniform Firearm Transfer Compact” in every state that agrees to the terms would maintain reliably uniform firearm transfer laws to ensure consistency in public policy.
Armed Man Stops Dog Attack
A Fort Wayne, Ind., man used his legally carried firearm to stop a dog that was attacking him Friday afternoon.
According to local media, the man was walking his dog in an alley when an aggressive Doberman charged him. Fearing a violent attack, the man pulled his gun and shot the dog, ending the threat.
Police told 21Alive News that they had received complaints about the Doberman being aggressive before and that the man who shot the dog would not face any charges.
