A LOOK AT THE STATES


ARIZONA:

HB 2353, Right to Carry permit reciprocity legislation sponsored by Representative Chuck Gray (R-19), will be put to a vote on the House floor early next week. This legislation requires Arizona to recognize the Right to Carry permits issued by any state. Currently, Arizona recognizes the permits of only five states. It would also increase the number of states that recognize Arizona permits. Please contact your two representatives by using our " Write Your Representatives" tool, or by calling them at (602) 542-4221, and urge them to support HB2353.

COLORADO:

The Senate will consider Senate Bill 24, the " shall-issue" Right to Carry legislation, on Monday, February 24. Senate Bill 25, sponsored by Senator Jim Dyer (R-26), will also be heard next week.

It is vital that you contact your State Senator at (888) 473-8136 and urge him to support SB24 and SB25 when they come before the Senate. Also, HB1119, legislation that cleans up Colorado`s gun show law, will be heard in the House State, Veterans, and Military Affairs Committee on Thursday, February 27, at 1:30 p.m. Please contact your Representative at (800) 811-7647, or by using our " Write Your Representatives" tool, and urge him to support HB 1119.

Default RE: NRA Alerts for your state

Thanks Mike, Hopefully Mo. might get a right to carry passed now since we have republicans in control of the house and senate for the first time in a long, long time. If the stinking Democrat gov. holden don' t veto it, which he has vowed to do.
