Two Pro-Gun Measures Pass Senate, Move to House in Arizona

Please Contact Your State Representatives Today!

This week, the Arizona Senate passed two important pro-gun bills (Senate Bill 1113 and Senate Bill 1243). Both bills now head to the House where they await a committee assignment.

SB1113 was passed yesterday by an 18-10 vote (with two not voting). Introduced by State Senator Jack Harper (R-4), SB1113 would give concealed carry permit holders the right to take concealed handguns into restaurants that serve alcohol, provided they are not consuming.

SB1243 was passed on Monday by a 21-7 vote (with two not voting). Sponsored by State Senator Russell Pearce (R-18), SB1243 would clarify the statutory definition of defensive display of a firearm. This clarification of defensive display of a firearm is a valuable addition to your right to self-defense.

Please contact your State Representatives TODAY and respectfully urge them to support SB1113 and SB1243. Contact information for your State Representatives can be found by clicking here.
