Senate Bill 1108 - Concealed Weapons

March 30, 2010 | AZPM

Senate Bill 1108 allows any Arizona resident over the age of 21 to carry a concealed weapon without a permit. A concealed weapons permit is still required in order to take a weapon into someplace serving alcohol and any establishment that expressly prohibits the carrying of weapons. Arizona would join Vermont and Alaska as the only states in the nation not requiring concealed weapons permits.

On March 29, 2010 the full Senate approved SB 1008 on a 20-10 vote.
