Arizona Officially Honors the Second Amendment

by Jason Stotts

The state of Arizona has just passed a law that allows any citizen over the age of 21 to legally carry any weapon they own on their person, whether concealed or open.  I think this is great and I imagine that crime will be doing down pretty rapidly. (AP article on Yahoo!)

PHOENIX – Favoring the constitutional right to bear arms over others’ concerns about gun safety, Gov. Jan Brewer on Friday signed into law a bill making Arizona the third state allowing people to carry a concealed weapon without requiring a permit.

The measure takes effect 90 days after the current legislative session ends, which likely puts the effective date in July or August.

“I believe this legislation not only protects the Second Amendment rights of Arizona citizens, but restores those rights as well,” Brewer, a Republican, said in a statement.
