    printer friendly version

    Question:

    im 15 in arizona and was wandering if it is legal to carry a airsoft gun, an airsoft gun is a gun that uses yellow plastic bb's and is sping loaded with an orange barrel,that is not concealed or loaded and is in a holster and not consealed and/or a knife that is 8 inches that is an a holster,and not consealed, just to scare away predaters?



    Answer:

    Arizona Law (A.R.S. § 13-3111) states that a minor cannot carry a firearm unless under the supervision of an adult. Technically a spring loaded gun is not considered a firearm. There may be local city ordances regarding these types of guns, so it would be a good idea to check with the authorities in your area.

    The largest knife you could legally carry is a pocket knife (A.R.S. § 13-3102), anything larger you need a permit for, and you can't get that permit until you are an adult.

    You also have to remember that you can't carry any type of weapon onto school grounds.

    i have wondered about that too. i dont think it would be a good idea to carry and airsoft gun around in public. i was playing with my friends with them at the church and a cop pulled his gun on us cuz the rifles and pistold looked real. he let us go cuz they were fake but sometimes it may be hard to tell and could make some of the public feel threatened. and im not sure but im pretty positive you could get in trouble for that. real or not the gun could still cause pain or some kind of panic. a kid walking around with a gun in a holster could look pretty dangerous to a cop. airsoft or not.

    Hey kid I higly would not reccomend you carrying a airsoftgun lets say for instance A guy of your age pulls an airsoft gun on another man that man is going to be able to tell that damn thing is fake because of the barrel size even the most realistic airsoft guns and he would most likely take it from you and shoot or stab you if he has a weapon which 98% of the populaton in Az Posses a deadly weapon any where from a gun or blunt sharp instrament furthermore if you pulled that on some one they have the LEGAL right to use deadly force to stop and disarm you! be smart dont carry fake weapons!!!
