Arizona Gov. Signs Bill Barring Enforcement of Federal Gun Controls
AWR Hawkins 7 Apr 2021
Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey (R) signed legislation Tuesday to bar in-state enforcement of any federal firearm laws which violate the Second Amendment.
On March 31, 2021, Breitbart News reported the legislation, HB 2111, titled â€œ2nd Amendment Firearm Freedom Act,â€ had been passed by the Arizona House and Senate and was heading to Duceyâ€™s desk.
The Associated Press notes that HB 2111 will â€œprohibit police and sheriffs from enforcing federal gun laws that violate the 2nd Amendment.â€
Ducey signed the legislation Tuesday despite petitions against it from Mike Bloomberg-affiliated Everytown for Gun Safety.
KTAR pointed out that Maricopa County Sheriff Paul Penzone, a Democrat, questioned HB 2111, claiming â€œit will create confusion or challenges more than benefits or protecting the Second Amendment.â€
Penzone called the bill â€œarbitrary,â€ adding, â€œIâ€™m just a little bit confused as to what value it offers.â€https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2021/04/07/arizona-gov-signs-bill-barring-enforcement-federal-gun-controls/
