Arizona: US Forest Service to Temporarily Prohibit Recreational Shooting in Parts of Coronado National Forest

Yesterday, the U.S. Forest Service announced that beginning on July 1, 2014, the Coronado National Forest, Sierra Vista Ranger District, will close Ash and Hunter Canyons to all recreational shooting for the duration of one year.  This ban on recreational shooting comes with very little advance notice, and no prior consultation with the NRA to prevent a closure.  Your NRA is now committed to working with the Sierra Vista Ranger District to formulate a cohesive solution and limit the prohibition on recreational shooting as much as possible.

Arizona: Governor Signs Pro-Gun Bills, Other Bills Await Consideration and Signature

Yesterday, Governor Jan Brewer (R) signed House Bill 2103 into law.  Introduced by state Representative Kelly Townsend (R-16), HB 2103 would allow an individual of at least nineteen years of age to obtain a concealed weapon permit if the person is currently in military service or has been honorably discharged.  This legislation is a good way to thank our military for their service and will benefit law-abiding gun owners in Arizona.  HB 2103 passed in the state Senate by a 20 to 10 vote on Wednesday and in the House by a 39 to 18 vote on March 10.
