PHOENIX - The gun debate is popping up in Arizona once again, as both sides are looking for new laws and stronger protections.
There's another effort to pass a legislation that aims to stop a domestic abuser from getting or keeping a gun.
"All over the country - Red States, Blue States, Purple States - are more aware of gun violence," said Laura Hudson with Moms Demand Action, in a phone interview.
Hudson says the demonstration in Virginia and pushback in Arizona won't deter their efforts.
"It's a temper tantrum because we're trying to pass laws that will save lives," said Hudson.
On the other side, a bill has been filed to try to protect gun rights in the state, at all costs.
The bill, filed by State Rep. Leo Biasiucci, will, if passed, make Arizona a "Second Amendment Sanctuary State". Biasiucci describes the bill, which would stop the state from cooperating with Federal officials over "violations to the Second Amendment", as a "pre-emptive action".
"You never know what's going to happen with a presidency or Congress," said Bisciucci.
On Tuesday, the city council in Bullhead City will vote on whether or not to make their municipality a "Second Amendment Sanctuary City".
