Republican Gov. Doug Ducey, from Arizona, recently signed a piece of legislation that will ban local governments and employees from enforcing or aiding any infringement on gun rights imposed by the federal government, according to The Blaze.
House Bill 2111 was established by the Arizona House and Senate in an effort to appropriate any new regulation of guns by the Biden administration.
“The state of Arizona and its political subdivisions are prohibited from utilizing any financial resources or state personnel to administer, cooperate with or enforce any law, act, order, rule, treaty or regulation of the federal government that is inconsistent with any law of this state regarding the regulation of firearms,” read the legislation.
Critics of the bill included Maricopa County Sheriff Paul Penzone who stated that there is “political motivation” behind it.
“It’s one of those emotional issues but as far as the impact on law enforcement, it will create confusion or challenges more than benefits or protecting the Second Amendment,” Penzone said.
People have said that the law will lead to lawsuits that will have to be paid with taxpayer money.
Moms Demand Action, a gun-control advocacy group, has gathered over 2,400 signatures opposing the bill.
Moms Demand Action presented them to Ducey’s office hours before he signed it into law.
Democratic Arizona state Sen. Lisa Otondo assured gun owners that their rights were safe.

Despite those assurances, gun sales have skyrocketed first over fears of instability from the pandemic lockdowns and later when President Joe Biden was elected.
