    Laws - View Law: GUNS & WEAPONS

    Guns & Firearms:

    Laws are set to protect kids and adults when dangerous instruments are involved. This applies to driving a car as well as to possession of guns. In Arizona, the law states that kids under the age of 18 are not allowed to carry guns. (ARS 13-3111). This law also provides some exceptions where kids are allowed to have and use a gun under certain restricted conditions. For example, a kid can carry a gun if he or she is with a parent, grandparent, qualified hunter, safety instructor, or qualified firearms safety instructor as long as there is permission from a parent or guardian. When involved in lawful hunting or shooting events or marksmanship practice, kids between the ages of 14 and 18 are allowed to be in possession of a firearm.(ARS 13-3111). Because there are many exceptions and details in this statute, you may want to read the law or consult a gun expert or lawyer before actually possessing a firearm.

    Deadly Weapons:

    Arizona Law (ARS 13-3101) says that a Deadly weapon is anything that is designed for lethal use, including a firearm.

    It is against Arizona law to carry a firearm or any deadly weapon on a school campus. (ARS 13-3102)

    hello chris, arizona gun laws are not allways black and white,sure you must 21 years of age to buy a hand gun from a gun store but you can be 18 years of age to own and carry a loaded hand in the state of arizona just as you would if you were 21 years old.However you can not obtain a ccw until you are 21 years of age so it would be a good idea to open carry with a holster until then. You can have a loaded hand gun in your car as long as it is in a holster whether or not it is on your person or in a glove box.If a cop stops you make sure that is the first thing you say to tham. jon
