Arizona: Legislature Adjourns With Pro-Gun Measures Going To Governor

posted on May 9, 2016

On Saturday, the Arizona Legislature adjourned sine die with four pro-gun bills, Senate Bill 1266House Bill 2338House Bill 2446 and House Bill 2524 headed to Gov. Doug Ducey’s desk for his consideration.

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 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) 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.
