Arizona Gov. Signs Bill To Pre-Empt Federal Gun Laws


Arizona Governor Doug Ducey has signed off on a bill aimed at pre-empting any new federal gun restrictions.

The bill bans local governments and police from enforcing any federal gun restrictions that are "inconsistent with any law of this state". Critics say the law wouldn't hold up in court.

The Biden administration has not yet passed any federal gun restrictions, but President Biden has said in the past that he'd support a ban on high-powered assault-style weapons.
