·        AZGOP Morrissey Message:  Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Commemorates Freedom, Sacrifice, And Civil Rights - King's "I Have a Dream" Speech Delivered in 1963 at Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. : In recognition of Martin Luther King Jr. Day 2013, Arizona Republican Party Chairman Tom Morrissey issued the following statement: "Dr. King's leadership was selfless -- his message was about progress and prosperity for all.  King was an eloquent advocate for the civil rights movement, which nearly fell victim to Democrats in Congress who wanted to preserve segregation.  I am proud that it was Republican Party support that resulted in passage of both the Voting Rights Act and the Civil Rights Act.  King reminded our country, right there on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, that we have sometimes fallen away from the principles of our founding, from our love for liberty, and from our commitment to justice.  Lincoln, the founder of our Republican Party, sought to restore those principles when he signed the Emancipation Proclamation.  And now King's legacy has joined Lincoln's, as today we celebrate King's guidance of our nation and his efforts to expand freedom for all Americans."

·        600 Proposed Legislative Bills Have Been Filed already this session. Filing deadline is Feb. 11. Arizona Citizens Defense League (AzCDL) is monitoring bills at Bill Tracking AzCDL will be closely watching Chad Campbell’s (D-24) gun control proposals:
ü  HB 2376 would allow law enforcement officers, when contacting anyone possessing a firearm, to make a non-professional assessment of their mental state, and if, in their sole discretion, they determine that person may be a danger to themselves or others, seize their firearms, and request they be carted off for a court-ordered mental evaluation.
ü  HB 2378 would eliminate state preemption over the disposition of surrendered and confiscated firearms, allowing for local politicians to destroy, rather than sell, firearms, as required by current law.
ü  HB 2379 would automatically make anyone subject to a restraining order a prohibited firearms possessor, regardless of the reason for the order.
ü  HB 2380 is the ultimate slap in the face to law-abiding gun owners. It would abolish Constitutional Carry. Only criminals would have the freedom to carry when and where they desired without government permission.
ü  HB 2381 would arbitrarily classify virtually all semi-automatic pistols and rifles as assault weapons, and require that all transfers of these firearms be tightly controlled and only allowable via a licensed firearms dealer. Violators face a $10,000 fine and arrest.
ü  You can obtain a pre-written opposition letter at AzCDLs Legislative Action Center.
