PHOENIX, AZ –-(Ammoland.com)- It's hard to express the feeling I have, now that the 25th edition of The Arizona Gun Owner's Guide is in print.

And this milestone — which I could not have imagined when I started back in 1988 — is the least of it.

This is the Constitutional Carry edition — vibrant freedom to keep and bear arms in my home state! The best gun laws in the world.

All the updates and bits and pieces are smoothly woven together, especially new self defense and uninfringed carry. Some of the results even surprised me. Except for prohibited possessors and prohibited places, it is now practically impossible to carry illegally in this state. Government is out of your face, out of your pockets, out of the picture when it comes to bearing arms. It was pure joy to delete all the infringements, the mandatory red tape, mandatory approvals, paperwork, criminal database requirements, DPS trainer approvals…

I even lost a cartoon! It took me quite a few attempts to finally realize I can't rewrite this caption — Arizona has outgrown this image, because there are no more “only when it's legal” rules! I left the image in only to make that point.

The price remained unchanged, only $14.95, cheaper than a lawyer, and there's a 40% discount on six copies or more — get together with friends or your club and buy a batch, Christmas is coming, makes a great gift, nice colorful redesigned cover. Now that training isn't forced upon you it's more important than ever to make sure everyone gets educated.

The following excerpt from the opening of Chapter 2, now my favorite part:

Arizona has become a shining example of freedom for the nation, now that most restrictions and interference on either open or discreet carry of firearms have been removed. With passage of Constitutional Carry in 2010, just about any method of bearing arms here is legal. The main limits are in the lists of prohibited places, people banned from firearms altogether, rules for youth and certain illegal arms.

Arizona has respected uninfringed open-carry freedom since statehood in 1912. A law-abiding adult here, not just residents, could always carry a firearm wholly or partially visible, with no need for classes, government applications, recordkeeping, registries, taxes called “fees,” paperwork, testing, fingerprinting, listing in online criminal databases, permission slips, photos, or other interference or red tape. This has a name you've heard–it's called freedom.

This freedom served the state well, though it got confusing during the late 1990s when some activist court cases questioned what “visible” means. Those problems have been eliminated by new law. Now, the same open-carry freedom this state has always enjoyed is available for people who carry discreetly, a somewhat more suitable method now that urbanization, increased population and a media-fueled cultural shift has made the open carrying of arms less unobtrusive. After 16 years of CCW permits (1994-2010) evidence was overwhelming that CCW registration schemes were costly and didn't make you safer.

Firearms may be carried either openly or discreetly in Arizona, loaded or unloaded, by any adult legally in the state, who is not banned from possessing arms. Special rules for youngsters, and places where guns may not be carried, are described later. We have in essence extended the Second Amendment right to bear arms to the entire planet.

We must fight to regain these freedoms in every state in the union, it is our god given right of self protection to own and bare firearms, and not the governments to grant to us.
