Both houses of the Arizona state legislature have passed HB-2095, an NRA-supported revision to the states firearms preemption law. The measure now goes to Republican Gov. Jane Hulls desk.
The measure makes important pro-gun technical revisions to the current statute, according to the NRA. Among these are: strictly prohibiting cities and counties from passing their own gun control ordinances; giving right-to-carry permit holders the ability to protect themselves in all city and country parks where carrying firearms is currently prohibited; requires cities and counties to store firearms securely for cities when local laws prohibit firearms in their buildings or on public transportation; protects gunowners from discriminatory taxation on firearms and ammunition, and shields firearms and ammunition businesses from unfair zoning practices.
