    Open Carry or CC to Your Heart's Content in Arizona

    You can carry anyway you choose in Arizona. Last Thursday Arizona SB 1108 became law. This is the so-called Constitutional Carry Law. Under this law, any non-felon adult (21 years) can carry a gun in Arizona open, concealed, or anywhere in a vehicle. You still need a permit do carry where alcohol is served or for reciprocity with other states. There are, of course, a few typically prohibited places (polling places, etc.). Arizona joins Vermont and Alaska as the third state with constitutional carry. This is a BIG Second Amendment victory.

    I think the CCW without a permit requires an Arizona Driver's License.

  5. Hello, everyone!

    I joined this site just so I could answer the question above. I am an Arizona CCW trainer, and just received the revised training materials that include "Constitutional Carry."

    Anyone within the boundaries of our state, as long as they are U.S. Citizens or legal U.S. residents may carry concealed in our great state. They have always been able to carry openly.

    Constitutional Carry is not so much a new law, but the removal from the books of the old law prohibiting cc.

    Carrying concealed by felons and other prohibited possessors, as well as those carrying out or intending to carry out a crime are still breaking the law.

    I hope this clears things up.

    All legal U.S. residents CAN still obtain an Arizona CCW permit, which gives them three main advantages:

    • They can carry in states that have reciprocal agreements with Arizona
    • They can carry concealed in restaurants with liquor licenses (if they haven't posted "no firearms), and
    • They can bypass the Brady background check on firearms purchases

    Yes it does. As long as you're at least 21 and a non-felon, the new law applies to you.

    Another reason to consider AZ as a place to visit or live.

  9. Invitation

    I agree. All freedom loving people are hereby invited to join us here in Arizona. We want you all to come and settle in the nation's free-est state, and help counteract the effects of liberal Californians who are fleeing the effects of California-style liberalism and coming here to repeat their effects here!

    Question you can open carry except where alcohol is served by drink or can unless you have concealed carry?? I am a little confused can you carry in a bar or food establishment openly or do you need a CCW license?? Thanks in advance.

    Arizona is one of the few states where you MUST conceal carry walking into an establishment that serves alcohol, and you must have a permit to do so.
