Rideout Law educates Arizonans on gun laws

Arizona gunowners choosing to open-carry may risk fines or arrest without fully understanding local gun laws.

Arizona is one of the most pro-gun states in the United States. According to CBS news, AZ rated 7th among states in terms of overall number of registered firearms with 204,000 total. Just because Arizona has less gun regulation than most states, doesn’t mean that there are no rules to follow.

According to the article below: “A prohibited possessor is an exception to the law, defined as someone who is a convicted felon and has not had their rights to own a firearm restored, an undocumented immigrant, anyone who is detained in a correctional or detention facility, has been found to be a danger to themselves or others, or serving probation for a domestic violence felony or felony offense.”

If you would like to be a gun owner, make sure you fit all the requirements. Breaking this law can lead to serious legal repercussions, especially if you are a convicted felon. Also, if you choose to open carry in Arizona, do not bring a firearm within 1,000 feet of K-12 school campuses, Native American reservations, businesses that serve alcohol or to polling locations on Election Day.
