While we were watching the horror of the #ParklandShooting unfold, #AZLeg House Judiciary Comm's GOP members passed HB2535, @kevinpayneLD21's bill that'd PROHIBIT all child welfare agencies from adopting or enforcing any rule or policy related to possession or storage of a gun.
In the same breath, Rep. Payne declares that the AZ Department of Child Safety's "primary purpose is to protect children" and that DCS should not maintain the ability to protect children from firearms. These seem like ideas completely at odds w each other, no?
Because we know that, during the first six months of 2017, for example, minors died from accidental shootings at a pace of one every other day, with the majority of the shootings occurring in the home. usatoday.com/story/news/201…
So who are the representatives who voted yes on passage of HB2535 on Thursday? @maryjpitzl, a reporter with the AZ Republic, has the summary for us:
Why is Rep. Payne sponsoring this bill and why are other GOP members of AZ leg supporting it? If we only knew...
What can you do about it? CALL YOUR STATE REPS and ask them to vote NO on HB2535. We need to make our voices loud and clear. #GunReformNow not looser restrictions. You can find your rep's contact info here: azleg.gov/MemberRoster/?…

Last week, Rep Jay Lawrence complained about having to👂to testimony about "pads & tampons & the problems of periods" for incarcerated women. This week, Rep TJ Shope refuses to give #HB2222 a hearing. Now what? Now, we make our voices heard. #LetItFlow THREAD
So, what's HB2222 all about? Currently, incarcerated women in AZ get 12 free pads each month. They must ask an officer if they need more. If they want tampons, they must buy them. To afford to purchase a box of tampons, a woman has to work up to 27 hours at $.15 per hour. /2
However, if blood stains a prisoner's pants, she is given a ticket for being out of dress code, which could result in her losing the ability to purchase store items, such as tampons and pads. /3
