    From the AZCDL:

    On Tuesday, May 11, 2010, Governor Brewer signed HB 2629.

    HB 2629 is a great example of how a few activists can make a big difference. It resulted from Mohave County being overly broad in interpreting the law requiring the storage of firearms when entering public (i.e., government) buildings. It seems a lot of extra record keeping was in place, in effect registering gun owners and their firearms. Fortunately the process was videotaped by concerned citizens and shared with AzCDL and the legislature.

    A House bill (HB 2629) was reconstituted by a “strike everything” amendment to address the issue. The new law prohibits a political subdivision from requiring or maintaining any permanent or temporary records related to the storage of firearms that contain descriptions (serial numbers, etc.) of firearms or their owners. The text of HB 2629 can be found here: http://www.azleg.gov/legtext/49leg/2r/bills/hb2629s.pdf .

    Included in HB 2629 is language that clarifies that “A person has no duty to retreat before threatening or using deadly physical force…if the person is in a place where the person may legally be and is not engaged in an unlawful act.”

    The effective date of HB 2629 is July 29, 2010.

    Love the "also included in the bill part" In how many states would this have been the "major" achievement? We have a great deal to be thankful for in Arizona- thanks in no small measure to AZCDL.

    “A person has no duty to retreat before threatening or using deadly physical force…if the person is in a place where the person may legally be and is not engaged in an unlawful act.”

    That in and ofitself is HUGE legal protectionwhich impacts each and every one of us.

    Not only legal protection, but protection from being shot in the back while we "retreat" before we can defend...
