Many Arizona cities and concerned citizens have been holding gun buyback events. The purpose for most people relinquishing their guns, has been to help reduce gun violence and wrongful deaths, especially after the 2011 massacre in a Tucson shopping mall, that killed six and injured 13, in attempt to assassinate U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.
Monday, GOP Arizona governor, Jan Brewer, signed a law making it illegal to destroy those guns turned over, and now the guns must be made available for resale by/for 'licensed gun dealers. I see. And those gun dealers would be selling their guns to...who?
Doesn't that defeat the purpose, Ms. Brewer? Wouldn't that be going the wishes of the people?
Furious Democrats in the Senate, argued the GOP is known for its opposition to 'government gun control' yet they want to use government control to promote their own gun agendas. Blatant hypocrisy at its best.
Brewer and NRA said House Bill 2455 is good for the taxpayer. It saves them money. What about the with the taxpayers who sold their guns specifically to promote gun safety?And if that wasn't enough, Brewer signed another anti-gun safety bill on Monday, barring counties from collecting or maintaining any identifying information about a person who owns or sells a firearm. In other words, she's not only against background checks, she now wants existing background checks destroyed?
Angry? Here's one thing we can do.The governor's office said nearly 2,000 letters, emails and phone calls were received approving the bill, and only 25 opposed. That's hard to believe. But just in case, here is the Governor's office contact info. She might need to hear from more of us:Main Source:Huffington Post
The Honorable Janice K. Brewer
