One way to make sure guns ain’t scary is to remove the stigma about carrying them around in public.
A bill proposed for the 2012 Utah Legislature would prohibit a person who is lawfully carrying a firearm in public from being charged with non- firearm related crimes such as disorderly conduct or disturbing the operation of a school.
HB49, sponsored by Rep. Paul Ray, R-Clearfield, states that, “… in the absence of additional threatening behavior, the otherwise lawful possession of a firearm … whether visible or concealed” would not in itself constitute a violation of various criminal statutes.
I *love* this piece of legislation. Not sure if this is already inscribed in Arizona law (Hello, Alan? Any comment?), but if it’s not, it should be.
Ok AZCDL, get crackin’.
