Tucson City Council approves new gun ordinances

Arizona gun billsTUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — Tucson has two new local gun laws that supporters say will help police investigate gun-related crimes.

One of the two ordinances approved by the City Council Wednesday night requires gun owners to notify police about lost or stolen guns within 48 hours.

The second ordinance allows police to conduct a blood or breath test for alcohol consumption by a person who negligently discharges a gun and appears intoxicated.

The Arizona Daily Star (http://bit.ly/18B4lwM) reports that state law already prohibits the negligent firing of guns.

  1. I did not write to the city council on these issues because I am no where near Tucson. Plus I really believe it, city council, can care less what the citizens of Tucson think. What Tucson needs is a lawsuit against it by the state or a private citizen.

    My constitution gives me the right to own a gun and I believe as long as I use it correctly I am obeying, following, the constitution. Now, just in case anyone is wondering. No!! I do not own a gun.
