This was given to me by a city of Phoenix police officer. It pretty much sums it up. This is from one of their "briefs". Nice to know for a fact that the police here are well versed in the law.

I lived in Phoenix/Tempe for 16 years and found AZ. to be a very gun friendly State. Use to open carry all manner of handguns without issues. I wish Tennessee would adopt the same CCW laws that AZ. has.

LEGAL TIP OF THE WEEK
May 25, 2012
"Have Gun, Will Carry," Part One


Arizona's gun laws are among the most permissive in the United States. Under Arizona law, private
citizens may choose to carry firearms in their vehicle or on their person in either an open or concealed
manner. However, these laws apply differently to certain categories of people. For example, we've been
asked about citizens between 18-20 years of age. Can they possess or carry a firearm in any capacity? As
Phoenix police officers, you may encounter a situation where you have lawfully detained an armed citizen
over the age of 18 (but not yet 21) either on the street or during a traffic stop. Your challenge will
be to understand how state gun laws apply to these individuals and whether they have violated Arizona
law based on their mode of carry.


1. General

According to state law, a person 18 years of age may purchase any non-NFA firearm from any source, however,
there is a federal age limit of 21 years on handgun purchases from federal firearms licensees (FFLs). This
means that 18-20 year old citizens may lawfully purchase or receive firearms through
non-FFLs, such as private sellers at gun shows.


2. Open Carry

Except for prohibited possessors, A.R.S. Sect. 13-3102 permits citizens 18 years and older to openly carry a
loaded firearm on their person or in their vehicle proviced that the firearm, holster, case or scabbard in
which the firearm is carried is visible. However, they are prohibited from carrying into venues that are
statutorily off-limits to them or have otherwise taken steps to limit the citizen's right to carry. This
generally includes the following places (*see A.R.S. Sect. 13-3102 for a full list plus any applicable
exceptions):

- Secured areas of airports.*
- K-12 School grounds.*
- Establishments which are licensed to sell alcohol for consumption on the premises.*
- Any private property or private establishment where the owner or any other person having lawful control
over the property has given reasonable notice forbidding the carriage of deadly weapons or firearms.*


3. Concealed Carry

Although Arizona continues to issue permits, "Constitutional Carry" (est. July 29, 2010) allows any citizen
who can legally own/purchase a firearm and is 21 years or older to carry it loaded and concealed on their
person (in a holster, scabbard, or luggage) without any type of permit or license. A.R.S. Sect. 13-3102
permits citizens 18 years and older to store a firearm in a vehicle provided the firearm is inside a case,
holster, scabbard, pack or luggage, or is located within a storage compartment, map pocket, trunk or glove
compartment. Additionally, if the firearm is in a holster, it can be concealed anywhere in the vehicle
without violating the law. This does not permit the 18-20 year old to conceal an unholstered gun underneath
his seat. (He'd have to wait until he's 21 to do that.) Remember that the prohibitions that apply to venues
where citizens cannot carry openly also apply to permit and non-permit holders who carry concealed firearms.
(*Permit holders may carry into restaurants that serve alcohol if they do not consume alcohol.)

Finally, it is a Class One misdemeanor if a citizen fails to inform you that he is carrying a concealed
firearm after you make contact with him during a lawful traffic or criminal investigation, arrest or detention,
or investigatory stop based on reasonable suspician ("Terry Stop") and ask him if he is carrying a concealed
deadly weapon. You may take temporary custody of the firearm for the duration of that contact under Arizona
law. Therefore, in order to promote officer safety, we advise you to make this part of your standard
operating procedure during all lawful stops, investigations and detentions.
