You can help with the following actions:
1. Call YOUR state senator. Strongly, but respectfully, express your support for the bill and let them know you want to see them vote YES on SB1294. If you get your state senator’s voice mail, leave a courteous message and ask for them to call you back to talk about it. If you don’t hear from them in 1-2 days, call them again and repeat the process.

Arizona state senator Kelli Ward (R-Lake Havasu City) has been joined by various co-sponsors in putting forth the the Second Amendment Preservation Act: an act that considers any federal laws “invalid and void” in Arizona if said laws infringe on the Second Amendment.
FreedomOutpost.com posted the text of the Second Amendment Preservation Act, which would not only nullify overreaching federal gun laws within the state of Arizona but would also prevent agents of the state from participating in their enforcement.
The bill specifically bars “an agency or political subdivision of [Arizona] or an employee of an agency or political subdivision of [Arizona] acting in the employee’s official capacity or a corporation providing services on behalf of [Arizona] or a political subdivision of [Arizona]” from “[enforcing] any federal act, law, order, rule or regulation that relates to a personal firearm, firearm accessory, or ammunition within the limits of [Arizona].”
According to the Examiner.com, senator Ward explained the need for his bill thus: “We’ve sat back and allowed the federal government to trample the constitution long enough. We’re going to pass this bill and stop the state of Arizona from helping the feds violate your rights.”
On January 27th Breitbart News reported Florida state representative Dane Eagle (R-Cape Coral) was pushing legislation to end that state’s cooperation with federal gun laws as well.
