We have liberals rolling in their graves (or soon to be in their graves)
Last week the governor signed two gun bills; inshort one keeps cities, counties & towns from changing Az state laws concerning permitting & registering firearms. See, one county I know of, Mohave Co. was registering guns to owners, (we dont register a firearm in AZ) the closes that we do is the FFL seller keeps a record of the original purchase. Also when someone goes to buy a firearm, a check is run on the person, not the firearm or the quantity. One check could mean 5 purchases at the same time.

The second one/slam against the big government from pushing around states was also done in Montana;
Firearms that are completely made in AZ will have a stamp "Made in AZ". They will NOT require registration of mnaufacture to the feds. As long as the firearm remains in AZ, the feds have NO reson to know of it's existance.

Finally; the big one, right to carry law; (This does not remove CCW, this just allows a person to lawfully conceal a firearm in public: i.e. in your car or on the street.) Not in private businesses or govt buildings. CCW's are still required. This law is for the guy who puts on a coat and walks down the street.Currently, if the firearm, (not holster) is covered and the person in doing so does not have a CCW permit, then they are in violation of a felony. This law will fix that.

Constitutional Carry Passes Arizona House,
Awaits Governor's Signature

Today, Senate Bill 1108 passed the Arizona State House by a vote of 36 to 19 with five absent votes. The bill now moves to Governor Jan Brewer's (R) desk for her consideration. As of now, the effective date for this bill has yet to be determined.

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 intent of this legislation is to give people the greatest possible freedom to choose the best method of carry for them. SB 1108 would generally allow law-abiding persons to carry a firearm for self-defense without a permit.

Arizona's constitution, Article 2, Section 26 clearly states that "The right of the individual citizen to bear arms in defense of himself or the state shall not be impaired." The intention of this language could not be clearer.
