You can see how your Representatives voted here.From here HB 2474 will be transmitted to the Senate.HB 2474 stipulates that property owners, tenants, public or private employers, and business entities must not prohibit the transport or storage of legally owned firearms in locked and privately owned motor vehicles parked within parking lots, parking garages, and other designated parking areas. It exempts property owners, tenants, public or private employers, business entities, and their employees or agents from civil liability for damages resulting from or arising out of an act involving a legally owned firearm that is transported or stored within a locked and privately owned vehicle. It allows employers and business entities to prescribe policies mandating that owners keep firearms out of the plain view of the public when stored or transported in locked and privately owned vehicles. And, it specifies inapplicability stemming from state and federal prohibition, and motor vehicle ownership.Note: Because AzCDL’s directors and officers will be attending the NRA Annual Meeting this weekend, there will not be any additional Alerts this week.These alerts are a project of the Arizona Citizens Defense League (AzCDL), an all volunteer, non-profit, non-partisan grassroots organization.AzCDL Protecting Your FreedomCopyright © 2009 Arizona Citizens Defense League, Inc., all rights reserved.
