Arizona --( just a few days, pro gun bills that were signed by Arizona Governor Brewer back in July of 2009 will become law.

The following are a few key pro-rights bills, that you should be aware of, that will become effective after midnight on September 30, 2009.


Defensive Display – Clarifies and codifies the defensive display of a firearm, such as:

  • exposing or displaying a firearm in a manner that a reasonable person would understand was meant to protect the person against another’s use or attempted use of unlawful or deadly physical force
  • verbally informing another person that the person possesses or has available a firearm
  • placing the person’s hand on a firearm while the firearm is contained in a pocket, purse or other means of containment or transport.

( )

Parking Lot Vehicle Firearm Storage – Prevents any private or public employer, property owner, etc., from banning any person from keeping a firearm in a locked vehicle in a parking area on the property, with specific limited exceptions.
( )

Restaurant Carry – CCW permit holders may carry concealed handguns in establishments that serve alcohol providing there is no signage prohibiting firearms and the person carrying the firearm does not consume alcohol.
( )

These alerts are a project of the Arizona Citizens Defense League (AzCDL), an all volunteer, non-profit, non-partisan grassroots organization. Join today!

AzCDL believes that the emphasis of gun laws should be on criminal misuse and that law-abiding citizens should be able to own and carry firearms unaffected by unnecessary laws or regulations. AzCDL was founded by a group of local activists who recognized that a sustained, coordinated, statewide effort was critical to protecting and expanding the rights of law-abiding gun owners. As a like-minded coalition of activists, the AzCDL founders were instrumental in the successful passage of the first major improvement to Arizona’s CCW (concealed carry) laws since they were instituted in 1994.
