Hi, I just moved here from Wisconsin.

I have been open carrying since 2010 and am a member or Wisconsin Carry Inc. I applied for my CCL the 1st day they were available and have a low 3 digit license #.

I am politically active and don't mind confronting politicians and other folks in authority when need be. In addition, I try to do what is legal, whether or not it is popular. To do that, I study the law and try to back up what I say with references to statutes.

We hosted WI CCL training classes for free at our church and trained over 1200 people.

I live in Chandler and work in Tempe and open carry every day, everywhere I go, except for places that are posted or other prohibited places.

I want to get together with people who believe like I do. I just signed up for the azCDL mail list.

Any suggestion as to what I can do to get more familiar with the firearm laws of AZ?

Thanks!

Welcome to sunny, dry Arizona paul@paul-fisher.com! :)

Glad to have you here, and hope the weather has been to your liking. That said, the AZ summer is approaching. "Dry heat" and all that, but it still gets hot enough that desert critters look for shade and water. When in Rome... :p


This sticky thread consolidates some great links regarding AZ OC and carry laws in general:
