Arizona Urgent Action Alert: 2 State Senators Blocking Bill to Protect 2nd Amendment

Arizona State Senator Kelli Ward has introduced SB1112, the  2nd Amendment Preservation Act which would nullify federal gun laws, rules, orders, and regulations within Arizona.   The bill passed out of the public safety committee by a 4-2 vote.  But, SB1112 is not going to get a vote in the full Senate without your help.

Currently, two state senators, Adam Driggs and John McComish, are preventing the bill from even being debated and considered by the full State Senate.  They believe that it’s “unconstitutional” for the state of Arizona to have a law which bans the federal government from violating the 2nd Amendment.

But we believe that “shall not be infringed” has absolutely ZERO wiggle room.  When the feds claim the power to take away your firearms – don’t you EXPECT your state senators to uphold THEIR oath to the Constitution?

Adam and John want you to believe that their role is to simply wait for the federal courts to strike down unconstitutional federal gun-grabbing plans.  But by the time that would ever happen, the BATFE could be taking self-defense away from you, your family – and anyone you know.

SB1112 would prevent this nightmare scenario from happening.  Adam Driggs and John McComish would rather leave you naked from such horrible attacks on your liberty than have some courage – courage to “DEFEND THE CONSTITUTION” – from all-comers.

UPDATE:  Hearing on SB1112 is happening at 1pm on Monday, 03-11-13.  Make your calls right away to move Driggs and McComish from the NO column to the YES column.

PLEASE ACT NOW TO HELP MOVE SB1112 FORWARD
