·        Update From The AzCDL On Their Firearms Related Bills currently in the legislative hopper: The following is the status of the remaining pro-rights firearm bills that have met the deadlines and are still viable. You can find the status of all the firearms related bills that AzCDL is tracking this session at our Bill Tracking page.
Ø  HB 2326, which would prohibit maintaining information on a person who possesses, purchases, transfers or sells a firearm except in the course of a law enforcement investigation, passed out of the House on March 7. On March 27, HB 2326 successfully passed out of the Senate Committee of the Whole (COW). The next step is a Senate Third Read vote which not yet been scheduled.
Ø  HB 2433, which would eliminate the statutory age cap on who is a member of the state militia, passed out of the House on March 5. It also passed out of the Senate COW on March 27 and is scheduled for a Senate Third Read vote on Monday, April 1.
Ø  HB 2455, the AzCDL-requested bill that would clarify that firearms
voluntarily surrendered to a state or local entity cannot be destroyed and must be sold, passed out of the House on March 7. It is schedule for a Senate COW hearing on Monday, April 1. If you have already emailed your Senator to support HB 2455 we thank you! If you have not emailed your Senator, what are you waiting for? If your Senator doesn’t hear from you, they assume you support the defeat of HB 2455 and will vote accordingly.
Your letter to your Senator urging them to support HB 2455 has been prepared and is waiting for you to send at AzCDL’s Legislative Action Center.
Assuming the above bills advance out of the Senate without amendments, they will be forwarded to the Governor. If they are amended, they must go back to the House of Representatives for action on the Senate amendments.
If you would like to contact your Senators about HB 2326 or HB 2433, AzCDL encourages you to use AzCDL’s Legislative Action Center. Click on your State Senator, then click on the “contact” tab when their information and image appear, then follow the cues to send an email.
Ø  SCR 1015, a Resolution that the members of the Legislature support the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution and reject the consideration of new legislation that would infringe on this constitutionally protected right, passed out of the Senate and was sent to the House on February 18. It passed out of the House Public Safety, Military and Regulatory Affairs (PSMRA) Committee on March 6. From there it was sent to the House Rules Committee where it will apparently languish for the rest of this session.
Ø  SCR 1016 would add to the 2014 general election ballot the question of whether to amend the state Constitution to allow the people of Arizona to reject a federal action that the people determine violates the U.S. Constitution by passing an initiative or referendum, passing a bill, or using any other available legal remedy, and to prohibit the state from using any personnel or resources to enforce or cooperate with a federal action that the people reject. This bill passed out of the Senate on March 4 and was sent to the House on March 5. It passed out of the House Federalism and Fiscal Responsibility (FFR) Committee on March 12. It has also joined the bills that have been buried in the House Rules Committee.
      If you would like to contact Representative Bob Robson, Chairman of the House Rules Committee, you may do so using AzCDL’s Legislative Action Center. Go here then click on the “Contact” tab and go from there. – Courtesy AzCDL
