Arizona: Gun Show Protection Returns, Hearing Thursday, February 8

Last year, Senate Bill 1428, strengthening Arizona’s firearm preemption law by ensuring gun shows could not be prohibited by local governments, passed the legislature only to be vetoed by Governor Katie Hobbs.

SB 1428 is back in the form of Senate Bill 1189 and needs your help to get back to Governor Hobb’s desk.

Firearm preemption laws are important, as they protect sportsmen and gun owners by prohibiting localities from instituting their own gun control legislation, leading to a patchwork of gun restrictions or outright firearm and possession bans. AND SB 1189 will do exactly that by prohibiting any locality of the state from prohibiting a gun show from occurring within the locality.

On Thursday, February 8, at 9:00 a.m., in Senate Hearing Room 1, the Senate Judiciary Committee is scheduled to hear Senate Bill 1189.  Please use our Take Action button below to email the members of the committee urging them to SUPPORT SB 1189.


Don’t forget to share this alert with your family, friends, and fellow sportsmen, and urge them to take action to protect gun shows in the Grand Canyon State. Also, encourage them to sign-up for updates and join the Sportsmen’s Alliance.  Sportsmen throughout the state must stay actively involved to help defend our hunting, fishing, and trapping heritage for future generations and the Sportsmen’s Alliance is here to help make that happen.
