    Constitutional Carry Passes Arizona House, Awaits Governor’s Signature (Thursday, April 08, 2010)

    This week, 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 openly or concealed for self-defense without a permit. Of course, you should always be mindful of, and obey, state and local laws.

    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.

    State No. 6 tells feds to stuff their gun regs
    Arizona declares weapons exempt from national firearms paperwork

    On 4/5/2010 Gov. Jan Brewer signed HB 2307, Arizona’s version of a “Firearms Freedom Act,” which originated in Montana and now has been adopted by six states, with several dozen more in various stages of their own plans. Arizona joins Wyoming, South Dakota, Utah and Tennessee as well as Montana.

    Brewer issued a statement that the law is intended to give Washington the message that they should not try to “get between Arizonans and their constitutional rights.”

    HB 2307 exempts firearms and ammunition manufactured in Arizona from federal regulations, including registration, so long as the weapons and ammunition in question do not leave the state. HB 2307 is part of a larger movement trying to assert the state’s sovereignty under the 10th Amendment to the US constitution. It has a general effective date of October 1, 2010.
