Everyone’s working so hard, it’s important to remind ourselves of the good news and keep our spirits up. Hurrah for people who are keeping track of happy news for us all! Check out the PeaceIsLoud blog for some things to celebrate this week!

AZ SB1243 FAILED in the Senate on Tuesday! It would have required public establishments to allow anyone with a gun permit to carry firearms inside unless the facility had security guards and metal detectors. Republican senators who joined Democrats to defeat the bill: Brophy-McGee (R-28), Pratt (R-8) and Worsley (R-25). Contact them with your thanks!

AZ SB1142, designed to suppress protests, was killed by a wave of calls and emails to House Speaker Mesnard. (source)
