Hearing Set for February on Tucson Gun Policy

Hearing Set for February on Tucson Gun Policy

As the great gun debate continues in the United States, there is a new development in Arizona’s own discussion and legislation on guns and firearms.

The Arizona Supreme Court┬áhas announced it’s decision to hold a full hearing on February 28 regarding complaint filed by Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich. His complaint contends that the city of Tucson is illegally destroying seized firearms instead of selling them.

The high court’s order on Wednesday confirms that full arguments will be held on the last day of February. On this day, justices will convene and discuss the constitutionality of a new state law that withholds state funds from cities if they enact laws that conflict with state laws.

The city of Tucson says it can destroy guns it owns and that the law, which was enacted in 2016, is unconstitutional, as it infringes on local rights. Attorney General Brnovich says the policy on destroying firearms may violate the law, and the high court will decide on the issue.

Other issues the court will discuss include whether it can order the withholding of state funds and whether Tucson must post a bond to continue arguing the case.
