____________________________________________________

HB 2074 was scheduled for a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on February 20, 2006. That hearing was canceled.



HB 2074 is now scheduled for debate and a vote in the Senate Judiciary Committee on Monday, February 27, 2006 at 1:30 PM in Senate Hearing Room (SHR) 1.

HB 2074 is an AzCDL supported bill that eliminates the CCW renewal training requirement: http://tinyurl.com/dsnmh

You still have time to contact committee members to ensure that HB 2074 favorably passes out of committee. Information on the committee members can be found here:
http://www.azleg.gov/CommitteeInfo.asp?Committee_ID=10

Below is a sample letter to cut-and-paste into an email message. Near the end of this message you will find the email addresses of all the committee members. Please send EACH committee member an email or letter urging them to pass HB 2074 out of committee with a recommendation for passage by the full Senate.

================================================== ==========

Dear Senator:

The Arizona Citizens Defense League (AzCDL) has informed me that HB 2074 is scheduled for debate and a vote in the Senate Judiciary committee on February 27, 2006.

I urge you to vote HB 2074 out of committee with a recommendation for passage by the full Senate.

HB 2074 eliminates the training requirement for Concealed Weapons (CCW) permit renewal. Arizona is one of the few shall-issue CCW permit states that require training for permit renewal. The overwhelming majority of shall-issue states do not require renewal training and they are not experiencing any problems. Arizona will not be the exception when HB 2074 is enacted.

Contrary to assumptions, there is no correlation between mandatory training and permit holder conduct. Ten states have no training requirements at all. Two of these, Indiana and Pennsylvania, have about three-quarters of a million active permits and have revocation rates that are comparable to, if not better than, states with training requirements.

Elimination of the renewal training requirement will result in an increase in CCW renewals and generate more State revenue from renewal fees.

Again, I ask for your support and vote for HB 2074.

Sincerely,
Your Name

also.....contact your reps on these bills as well...these all can and will effect how you CCW!!


SB 1425, "Emergency Powers Protection" sponsored by Senator Dean Martin (R-6), passed the Senate Government Committee by a vote of 5-2. Please contact your State Senator and ask him or her to support SB 1425, as it is headed to the Senate Floor.

HB 2076, "Government Storage Clarification," sponsored by Representative Chuck Gray (R-19), passed the House Judiciary Committee by a vote of 6-3. This legislation will compel state and local governments to comply with the 2000 statutory requirement to store firearms for citizens when they prohibit firearm possession on their property. Many government entities have refused to comply with this requirement. Please contact both your State Representatives and encourage them to pass HB 2076.

SB 1145, the "Castle Doctrine," sponsored by Senator Timothy Bee (R-30), passed the Senate Judiciary Committee by a vote of 7-1. Most importantly, the amendment to return the "Burden of Proof" in state self-defense cases was adopted. This amendment corrects the current "guilty-until-you-prove-your-innocence" standard in state self-defense cases. Arizona is one of only two states in the country that places the burden of proof in self-defense cases on the citizen instead of the state. This is simply wrong and must be corrected this year before more abuses occur! Please contact your State Senator and ask him or her to support SB 1145 with the "Burden of Proof" Amendment, on the Senate Floor.

Members of the Arizona State Legislature can be reached by calling (602) 926-4221, for the State House, or (602) 926-3559, for the State Senate.

HB 2074, "Elimination of CCW Permit Refresher Training," sponsored by Representative Chuck Gray (R-19), will be heard in the Senate Judiciary Committee on Monday at 1:30 p.m. Please contact members of the Senate Judiciary Committee and ask them to support HB 2074.

CCW training change.... Too bad!

To me one of the best features of the CCW was that training was required. I feel that anyone that owns a weapon should be required to be proficient in its use.....

Did the CCW course teach you how to use your firearm.?? Mine didnt...it was required to know how to use it before coming to the class...

YOU should be seeking more training privately....not from the CCW class. The initial CCW class should prove that the student IS proficient and has basic knowledge of firearms and the USE of deadly force.

Please remember here in AZ...you can buy and carry a handgun with NO prior training or permit.
