Mark Kelly Reacts to Brewer’s Vetoes of HB 2517 and HB 2339

Posted By on Wed, Apr 23, 2014 at 4:30 PM



Captain Mark Kelly, Co-Founder of Americans for Responsible Solutions, issued the following statement after Arizona Governor Jan Brewer vetoed H.B. 2517 and H.B. 2339:

“As Arizona residents and gun owners, Gabby and I applaud Governor Brewer for vetoing these two misguided bills that would have made our communities less safe. By taking away the power of our local leaders to decide when to allow guns in public buildings and penalizing leaders who act in their community’s best interest, these two bills were an affront to our local elected and law enforcement officials. As a state with a long and proud culture of gun ownership, Arizona must have laws that balance our Second Amendment rights with our responsibilities as gun owners. These two bills failed to strike that balance, and we commend Governor Brewer for recognizing the need for commonsense, moderate solutions to reducing gun violence.”
