New Arizona Bill Would Give Tax Break To Gun Owners

Arizona’s house majority leader introduced a bill to provide tax breaks for concealed carriers.

Republican House Majority Leader Steve Montenegro is pushing for House Bill 2494, legislation that would reimburse residents up to $80, the cost of getting a concealed carry permit.

“Law enforcement have told us time and again that the first line of defense are those that carry CCW permits,” Montenegro said. “In essence, what it does is it’s bringing a level of awareness that we want to make sure that we can say maybe the next generation of those that want to have or possess firearms, they understand that we as a state value making sure that people are educated in how to use weapons or how to carry weapons.”

An investment in a safer future. Guns are not going away, so do the best to get those who have them trained to use them.

Exactly 6:02PM. Defenders of the Second Amendment should be treasured not vilified. CCW is something Maryland should reinstate again.

This state has it right. Look up their crime stats someday!

Maryland issues CCW permits but you have to jump through hoops to get one.
