AZ: Legislative update from AZCDL

Legislative update from AZCDL:

Your emails, letters and phone calls worked again! HB 2629, an AzCDL requested bill that clarifies when a defensive display of a firearm is justified, passed in the Senate Third Read on Monday, May 12, 2008 by a vote of 19-7 with 4 Senators not voting. From here, HB 2629 will go back to the House for concurrence before being sent to the Governor.

We have some other good news. 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, has finally moved out of the Senate Rules Committee (thanks to YOUR pressure). The next steps are debate in the Senate Committee of the Whole (COW) followed by a formal vote in Third Read.

Meanwhile, HB 2389, an AzCDL requested bill decriminalizing carrying weapons in vehicles without a CCW permit, has been scheduled for debate in the Senate COW on Tuesday, May 13, 2008.

Please take the time to send a polite note to your Senator urging them to vote for the passage of HB 2389. You can find your Senator here:
