On April 6, 2021 Governor Ducey signed HB 2111, the AzCDL supported legislation defending Arizona’s Right to Keep and Bear Arms (RKBA) from federal overreach.

HB 2111 states that, pursuant to the sovereign authority of Arizona and Article 2, Section 3 of the Arizona Constitution, the state and all political subdivisions (i.e., agencies, counties, cities, etc.) are prohibited from using any personnel or financial resources to enforce, administer or cooperate with any act, law, treaty, order, rule or regulation of the United States government that is inconsistent with any Arizona law regarding the regulation of firearms.

In a nutshell, passage of HB 2111 will:

  • Ban state and local enforcement of any federal firearms restrictions that don’t have concurrent measures in law in the state of Arizona.
  • Ban state and local enforcement of any future federal firearms restrictions that are not legal in Arizona.

We thank the several thousand members and supporters who contacted the Governor urging him to sign HB 2111.  You made a difference.

The general effective day for bills signed by the Governor is 91 days after the session adjourns.
