What are the Gun Laws in Tempe, Arizona?
Arizona was the second state - after Alaska - to enact “Constitutional Carry” laws. Which means that any person over the age of 18 may legally openly carry a firearm and any person over the age of 21 may carry a concealed firearm.
There still exists other laws regarding certain places that will NOT allow the possession of a firearm. Some of these places are:
- Businesses serving alcohol on the premises
- Polling places on election days
- K-12 school grounds
- Commercial nuclear & hydroelectric generation stations
- Military installations
- Indian reservations
- Correctional facilities
- Federal buildings - included post offices
- Places that specify restricted admittance where firearms are not allowed
- State or local government buildings
- Colleges or university grounds
As you can see, there are many limitations to Arizona’s generous gun laws. Because of these limitations, it may be difficult to discern whether you have actually violated weapon laws, or you’re are being falsely charged. For this reason, it is imperative you seek the guidance and counsel of an experienced attorney to represent you and defend your right to bear arms.
