Arizona passes new law targeting Tucson’s current gun laws

Tucson background check

The state of Arizona has passed a brand new State Bill, which is obviously aimed at Tucson city’s stubborn stance on firearm background checks. The new law is specifically targeting the private sale of guns amongst citizens. A city ordinance that required background checks for gun sales was passed more than five years ago and the new law aims to change just that.

According to State Bill, SB 1122, guns will essentially be treated as personal property, similar to refrigerators, television sets, couches, and other items. As such, the sale or transfer of the property will no longer require that a third party is involved. The “third party” portion is, of course, referring to federal background checks.

The bill was signed into law by Governor Doug Ducey earlier in the month, on May 1. The original proposition was passed by Hereford Republican Gail Griffin.

The state has been trying several ways to change the city’s stance on guns for the past several years. The fight even got to the point where the state took the city to court in order to force it to change its ordinances. However, the court sided with Tucson and ruled that the city was a charter city and can, therefore, determine its own regulations.

City council members have expressed their intention to fight against the new law. Council member Steve Kozachik even mentioned that the city is very much up to the challenge. However, gun rights advocates are concerned about the city’s stance and hope that the city realizes that it is overstepping its bounds by requiring these background checks.

Kozachik reiterated that the courts are still on their side and they can still require a background check is a gun is sold within their city. The council member also revealed that if need be, they will assert their right as a charter city to not allowing people to sell their guns on the city’s property without a proper background check.
