Arizona gun owners get “Constitutional Carry” law to pack heat openly or concealed without a permit

Bill: SB1108 (PDF)

Sponsored by Sen. Russell Pearce, and signed into law in 2010 by Gov. Jan Brewer, SB1108 allows Arizona gun owners to carry or transport a concealed deadly weapon without a concealed-carry weapons permit. In a statement to the press, Gov. Jan Brewer says: “Today I signed Senate Bill 1108, the constitutional carry bill. I believe this legislation not only protects the Second Amendment rights of Arizona citizens, but restores those rights as well. I am joined in support of this legislation by both Republican and Democratic members of the Arizona legislature, and I laud the strong number of bipartisan supporters who join with me to defend the rights of our citizens.”
