Information Regarding Arizona Concealed Carry Laws


LL at Virtual Mirage has Virtual Mirage up explaining Arizona's recent vote on concealed carry in the State House of Representatives.

From Virtual Mirage:

On Thursday, the Arizona House voted to make the state the third in the nation to allow people to carry concealed weapons without a permit. The legislation, approved by the House 36-19 without discussion, would make it legal for most U.S. citizens 21 or older to carry a concealed weapon in Arizona without the permit now required. Governor Jan Brewer is expected to sign the measure into law.

Arizona will join Alaska and Vermont in not requiring permits to carry concealed weapons. Forty-five other states require permits for hidden guns, and two states — Illinois and Wisconsin — prohibit them altogether.

Firearms restrictions only affect people who want to follow the rules because criminals will carry hidden guns regardless of the law.

Please be sure to check out the rest of LL's post, which includes information on other pieces of legislation recently signed into law by Governor Brewer.

This is wonderful news for Arizona!

ALL RIGHT !!! Some states are wising up. The trouble with that is they (the bad guys) will all come California where they want us to register ammo. Can you believe that? I'll bet the bad guys don't ... stupid state!!!

re: criminals will carry hidden guns regardless of the law. exactly, ski from over at global domination and have pointed this fact out separately, previously. not (previously) allowing the citizenry to partake in 1 of their rights is just another example of the government controlling a free people.

Another victory for the 2nd amendment and the law abiding citizens of AZ.

Great news for AZ. In FL, we need a permit.

Register ammo??!!!!

Our legislators here in the Chicago/IL area are probably kicking themselves for not thinking of that.

All out handgun ban in Chicago and the state requires licensing and waiting periods even for shotguns (just bought one yesterday). No conceal carry anywhere in the state, not even if certified to carry from another state.

If I see a trend of more states allowing their citizens to carry it would be a great thing. I've considered carrying here even at the risk of a felony because in the end, if something bad goes down. Your ass can thank your pistol, and you'll be alive to go to court for the so-called crime of carrying.

Ozzie, yea, I'd rather be judged by 12 than carried by 6.

Great news for AZ. I'll tell ya Soloman, after JN as governor, I was wondering about that state. And dang, what is it with the female governors there. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

This is great news! :) I recently got my concealed carry permit in Virginia. I'll check out LL's site. By the way, LL's book is incredible - you have to read it (time willing). Great writer, fascinating stuff...

This made my gun-loving hubs very happy.

I'm just wondering if I can find a gun with a pink grip and a little bling? You know, because it's gotta match my purse.
