Arizona becomes third state to legalize carrying concealed gun without a permit

April 17, 2010

(ChattahBox) – Arizona has become the third US state to legalize carrying hidden weapon without a permit. By eliminating the permit requirement, the Arizona legislation will allow people 21 or older to skip going though background checks and classes that are now required. Gun buyers still face federal background checks when purchasing weapons from a store. Alaska and Vermont are the other states that not require permits to carry concealed weapons.

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer signed the bill into law on Friday, which likely puts the effective date in July or August, based on measures going into effect 90 days after the current legislative session ends. Favoring the constitutional right to bear arms over others’ concerns about gun safety, republican Gov. Brewer said in a statement, “I believe this legislation not only protects the Second Amendment rights of Arizona citizens, but restores those rights as well.”

With the tea-partiers arming cab drivers to save money on police, well,…gun-laden good guys and gals with no mind of there own…making it up as they go, go ,go. A country of what…?
