Arizona Governor Signs Pro-Gun Measures

posted on May 12, 2016

On Tuesday, Gov. Doug Ducey signed two important pro-gun bills into law.

Senate Bill 1266 is an important measure that ensures consistency in gun laws throughout the state by strengthening the state’s current preemption statutes. House Bill 2338 would prevent educational institutions from adopting policies that would prohibit individuals from lawfully possessing or carrying a firearm in their vehicle (means of transportation) or on their person, on a public right-of-way.

Governor Ducey’s signing of these two bills was preceded by his signing last month of House Bill 2224, which prohibits the state and any political subdivision from levying a fee, tax, assessment or other financial encumbrance on the transfer of a firearm between two private parties who are not prohibited under state or federal law. By signing HB 2224 into law, Gov. Ducey reaffirmed that private citizens who are not prohibited from owning and possessing firearms have the right to conduct infrequent transfers without government intrusion.
