The NRA has been aiding in the enactment of rational laws. (quote)
Actually, the NRA stepped in and changed the bill to allow only CCW holders and not just anyone open carrying.
The bill was aimed at allowing someone who wants to go eat at a restaurant that serves alcohol without having to leave his gun in the car, like how it was before the passing of this bill.
Arizona Citizens Defense League (AZCDL) is the grassroots organization that is the originator of this bill and others that have been passed recently, in a lot of instances the NRA has stepped in and either changed or took credit for the bills.
AZCDL works with the NRA but it is an organization born in and for Arizona, they follow the template started in Virginia CDL.
I believe credit needs to go where it's due.
