On March 14th at 10:00AM, the Arizona state Senate Judiciary Committee will be hearing House Bill 2693 to improve the ability of law-abiding citizens to defend themselves and their families by reducing arbitrary boundaries that leave them defenseless. HB 2693 previously passed the state House of Representatives by a vote of 31-27. Please contact committee members and urge them to SUPPORT HB 2693. Click the “Take Action” button to contact committee members.
In addition, please use the Request to Speak application (RTS) on the Arizona State Legislature website to urge Senate Judiciary Committee members to SUPPORT HB 2693. RTS is the most efficient and effective way to contact committee members regarding Second Amendment legislation. It is imperative that you create an account and continue utilizing this tool throughout the 2019 legislative session.
House Bill 2693, sponsored by Representative Warren Petersen (R-12), would allow law-abiding citizens to store their loaded firearms in their locked personal vehicles while parked on school grounds. This would ensure that parents would be able to pick-up and drop-off students without first having to stop and unload their firearms before driving onto school grounds or deviating from their route to park off campus. So called “gun-free zones” are arbitrary boundaries that only disarm law-abiding citizens and leave them defenseless while doing nothing to deter criminals.
Again, please click the “Take Action” button above and use the RTS system to contact committee members and urge them to SUPPORT HB 2693.
