Here in AZ you can have a felony expunged, but must still apply to have your 2A rights restored separately. HB2134Requesed by the AZCDLclarifies that a person with an expunged felony, or who has had their rights restored, may obtain a concealed weapons permit.
If I'm reading the AZ State Legislature's website correctly, itshows that this bill has gone through its second reading in the senate and is awaiting committtee action prior to the third read and vote.
Dahwg - Thanks! A little keystroke slip though. It's HB 2634
and it's one of the bills being held hostage in the Senate Rules committee (see AzCDL News
HB 2634 has been through the House and, once it gets out of Senate Rules, will be debated in the Senate Committee of the Whole (COW) then voted on in 3rd Read and, if no changes are made, will be sent to the governor.
HB 2634 enjoys bipartisan support and stands a good chance of becoming law.
