Catalina, AZ --(Ammoland.com)- Guns and Ammo magazine recently rated all the states on how they treat the right to bear arms. Arizona was rated #1. You can read the article here: http://tiny.cc/4ns5tw .
States were measured on “gun rights/friendliness to gun owners” by the following criteria:
- CCW/Open Carry laws.
- Treatment of “sporting” rifles (ARs, AKs, etc.).
- Treatment of Class 3/NFA firearms.
- Castle Doctrine/Stand Your Ground.
- Miscellaneous issues like restrictions on gun or ammo purchases, magazine capacity, CCW reciprocity, etc.
All you need to do is look at AzCDL’s accomplishments to see why we are rated #1:
We are proud that AzCDL’s efforts, with your support, have garnered this high rating for Arizona from such a prestigious publication. However, from our perspective there is a lot more that needs to be done to make Arizona truly a free state when it comes to honoring your constitutionally protected right to bear arms. With your continued support we can achieve that goal.
These alerts are a project of the Arizona Citizens Defense League (AzCDL), an all volunteer, non-profit, non-partisan grassroots organization: www.azcdl.org .
AzCDL – Protecting Your Freedom
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.
