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.
This is wonderful news for Arizona!
