Arizona gets it!!!

So off to the Arizona Governors desk for signature.  Arizona becomes another State who get's the 2nd amendment and understands its own State Constitution.(Along with Alaska and Vermont)  I am a huge proponent for carrying a firearm.  Any law abiding citizen should always have the choice. I'm not forcing anyone to do it, and I highly recommend safety training from a NRA instructor. I especially think woman need to carry more. They are often the victims of crimes that I find mentally disturbing.  Sure you can show me a woman or 2 that kick some guys butt.  But most men are stronger than most woman.  A good quality firearm can easily level the playing field. What I teach is to not just train to fire the gun, but train to have shoot someone.  That is a tough issue for many.  So you have to train the body and the mind.  Professional criminals know that law abiding folks might delay or be talked out of using a gun.  But believe me they are afraid, they are very afraid.  Most criminals are cowards that feed of people fears. 

Add into this story that Iowa just became the 41st State to allow concealed carry and we have a winning gun friendly week.

Under Arizona law it is generally legal to carry a firearm openly as long as you are 18 years of age and not prohibited from possessing a firearm.  However, if the firearm becomes covered, say with a coat, or if you are a woman and prefer to carry your firearm in your purse, you need to possess a concealed carry permit.  The intent of this legislation is to give people the greatest possible freedom to choose the best method of carry for them.  SB 1108 would generally allow law-abiding persons to carry a firearm for self-defense without a permit. 
Arizona’s constitution, Article 2, Section 26 clearly states that “The right of the individual citizen to bear arms in defense of himself or the state shall not be impaired…”  The intention of this language could not be clearer.

What do you think?
