2010 gun bills on tap

H2015: FIREARMS; DEFENSIVE DISPLAY; JUSTIFICATION
Under this bill, a person who is threatened with physical violence would be justified to shoot and kill the assailant. The bill expands on a law passed last year that allows Arizonans to defensively display a gun if they are threatened with physical violence; doing so previously could have been considered assault.
Sponsor: Rep. Judy Burges

H2016: FIREARMS; CONCEALED CARRY; REQUIREMENTS
A person with a concealed-carry permit from another state who has been convicted of a felony would be cleared to legally carry a concealed weapon in Arizona if that conviction is expunged or his or her civil rights have been restored. Normally, such a felony conviction would prohibit the person from carrying a concealed weapon in Arizona.
Sponsor: Rep. Judy Burges

H2017: SCHOOLS; GUN SAFETY PROGRAM; INSTRUCTORS
Specifically requires that instructors for gun safety programs be certified by the National Rifle Association of America or the Arizona Game and Fish Department. Existing law requires the instructor be certified by Game and Fish or “a national association of firearm owners.”
Sponsor: Rep. Judy Burges

S1011: CONCEALED WEAPONS; FACULTY; SCHOOL GROUNDS
Faculty at universities and community colleges would be allowed to bring guns on campus if they have a valid concealed-carry permit. Under existing law, deadly weapons are prohibited on school grounds.
Sponsor: Sen. Jack Harper

S1015: LIQUOR ESTABLISHMENTS; WEAPONS

Last year, lawmakers allowed Arizonans with concealed-carry permits to bring guns into bars and restaurants, unless the business owner had posted a sign next to its liquor license prohibiting patrons from carrying guns. This bill would change the location of the sign to within 20 feet of each cash register where liquor is sold, at every entrance to the building or behind the bar. It also prevents prosecution of a patron who brings in a gun against the wishes of the bar’s owner if the signs are not posted properly or were not posted more than 30 days before the violation.

S1021: JUSTIFICATION; DEFENSIVE DISPLAY; FIREARM
Last year, lawmakers allowed Arizonans to defensively display a gun if they are threatened with physical violence; doing so previously could have been considered assault. Under this bill, if the person shoots and kills his assailant in such a situation, the shooting would be justified. This bill is identical to H2015.
Sponsor: Sen. Russell Pearce

H2041 FIREARMS; PEACE OFFICERS; SCHOOL GROUNDS
Under current law, police officers are not allowed to carry their guns while drinking liquor at a licensed establishment operated by a political subdivision of the state. This bill clarifies that the definition of political subdivisions includes school districts, charter schools, community colleges and state universities.
Sponsor: Rep. John Kavanagh
