AZ: AZCDL President Dave Kopp on KFNX 1100 AM this Sunday Evening

Update from AZCDL:

Dave Kopp, AzCDL's President, co-founder, and chief lobbyist, will be interviewed by Mark Zemel of "The Arizona Right Report" this coming Sunday, May 25, 2008, between 8:10 PM and 8:45 PM.

The interview can be heard on KFNX 1100 AM in Phoenix. You can also listen live at

We encourage everyone to CALL IN with questions and comments about AzCDL supported legislation, other gun bills, and the legislative process in general. Ask Dave what it's like lobbying for our rights at the Legislature, and how reality compares with the myths you heard in High School Civics.

You can reach the show in the Phoenix area at 602-277-5369, or toll free at 1-866-536-1100. If enough people call in, the interview time will be extended past 8:45 AM. This is YOUR chance to get the lowdown directly from AzCDL's President, and to publicize the efforts and successes of AzCDL!

Information on legislation that AzCDL is tracking can be found at:
AzCDL requested and supported bills that are still making their way through the process are:

HB 2629, an AzCDL requested bill that clarifies when a defensive display of a firearm is justified.

HB 2389, an AzCDL requested bill that clarifies that it is permissible to carry a weapon, without a CCW permit, visibly or concealed, anywhere within a means of transportation, excluding public transit.

HB 2634, an AzCDL requested bill that clarifies that a person with an expunged or set-aside felony conviction, or one who has had their rights restored, may obtain a concealed weapons permit.

SB 1070, an AzCDL requested bill that makes it easier for lawful gun owners who have satisfactorily completed training to obtain a permit, or renew an expired one.

SB 1106, Senator Chuck Gray's bill that provides for an optional lifetime CCW permit.

Let's not forget about SB 1214, the AzCDL requested bill that originally would have complied with Federal law by allowing adults with Concealed Weapons (CCW) permits to carry concealed firearms on school campuses. After being amended to allow carrying only on Universities and Colleges, the Republican controlled Senate quietly killed SB 1214, after attempting to neutralize it with more burdensome amendments.

And finally, there is HB 2630, the AzCDL requested bill that would have reduced the penalty for a law-abiding person carrying a concealed weapon without a permit to a petty offense, while increasing penalties for criminals. HB 2630 was vetoed by the Governor on April 29, 2008.

We encourage you to listen to Dave's radio interview this Sunday, and call in with your questions and comments!
