    Arizona: Carry Reform Bill Passes out of Committee

    Wednesday, February 10, 2010


    Please Contact Your State Legislators!

    Last week House Bill 2347 Documents For Bill passed out of the House Military Affairs and Public Safety Committee by a vote of 5 to 2. HB 2347 would eliminate a long standing double standard between concealed carry and open carry.

    Currently under Arizona law it is generally legal to carry a firearm openly as long as you are 18 years of age and not prohibited from possessing a firearm. However, if the firearm becomes covered, say with a coat, or if you are a woman and prefer to carry your firearm in your purse, you need to possess a concealed carry permit. The permit system is expensive and time consuming, considering all you have done is change your attire. While the recently amended language would allow law-abiding persons to carry their firearm concealed, it would not allow those without permits to carry concealed in places that require a permit, such as restaurants. It is the intention of the NRA to fully support the amended version of HB 2347 and provide greater freedom of choice for Arizona gun owners.

    Please take the time to respectfully urge your state legislators to support the amended version of House Bill 2347. Contact information can be found by clicking here https://www.nramail.org/owa/auth/log...cials&reason=0.

    Thanks for the update. Keep us posted, I'm hoping this becomes law.
    People don't like to be meddled with. We tell them what to do, what to think, don't run, don't walk. We're in their homes and in their heads and we haven't the right. We're meddlesome.--River Tam

    This is now SB1108, which is identical wording as HB2347.

    Last Thursday, April 8, a House floor vote was taken and passed 36-19. It was sent back to the Senate on Friday, and is now in the hands of the Governor.

    Gov. Brewer to get concealed-gun bill

    The Gov has until Thursday, I think, to either sign it or veto it. She is expected to sign it.

    I think every state should secede from Washington, DC, then we'll have them surrounded.
