Thanks to your effortsappearsit will be easier to open carry in AZ- the worry that the weapon will become inadvertantly concealed thus subjecting one to a misdemeaner charge- is a big step closer to being removed! Next stop the Senate, then our lovely hoplophobic Governor. Keep up the good work.
Question for you, what exactly will a petty offense mean? A fine? no jail time correct?
Thanks for the compliments!
Petty Offense is less than a misdemeanor.It's defined inARS 13-105as an offense for which a sentence of a fine only is authorized by law. ARS 13-802 limits the fine to $300.
The language in HB 2630 is identical to the language in last year's SB 1629 after being amended in various committees etc. The governor vetoed SB 1629 but we want to let her know we can keep getting it in front of her.
This year, she faces a major quandry. She tries to appear pro-gun when she is reality anti-gun but pro-Janet. This year we have Petty Offense, Vehicle Carry, School Carry, Defensive Display, a weak Restaurant Carry,and other controversial bills, all heading to her desk. She wants them all dead but is she willing to expose her true feelings if she wants to move up the political food chain? We'll see.
Thank for your help in getting these bills through the legislature!
