Arizona lawmakers introduced last week a bill aimed at stopping people, and businesses, from selling or owning assault weapons and large-capacity magazines. Senator Rebecca Rios sponsored Senate Bill 1625, and 11 other lawmakers backed the legislation.
Veerachart Murphy, the owner of North Phoenix gun store Ammo AZ, said the bill has boosted sales. “I’m taking phone calls as far as ‘hey, should I come get something now?’ I’m trying to ensure them: ‘Look, don’t panic, buy,” Murphy said. He said sales “have literally been up about 50 to 70 percent,” with the AR-15 being the number one most sought after weapon.
The bill was introduced last week. As I have stated time and again, the blue print of Virginia is being applied nationwide. But it’s probably just me overreacting.
