Concealed firearms without a permit in three states April 20, 2010

Posted by federalist in RKBA.

Arizona just joined Alaska and Vermont in allowing concealed carry of firearms without a permit. The law, restoring this right to adults over age 21, takes effect this summer. Interesting details from an AP report:

[T]he measure was supported by police unions representing rank-and-file officers, who said their best friend on the streets is a law-abiding citizen equipped to protect themselves [sic] or others.

Under the Arizona legislation, people carrying a concealed weapon will be required to tell a police officer that if asked, and the officer can temporarily take the weapon while communicating with the person.

More than 154,000 people have permits to carry a concealed weapon in Arizona.

Forty-five other states require permits for hidden guns, and two states – Illinois and Wisconsin – prohibit them altogether.
