    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)

    Contrary to what some are posting here, I believe you can legally possess a handgun in AZ at 18yrs old, but you have to be 21 to purchase one and/or obtain a concealed weapon permit. As they say here, it's best to consult an attorney due to numerous exceptions/exemptions.

    Yup. brass knuckles are illegal in AZ. Lol it's not illegal to sell them in Arizona but the moment you purchase them you commit a misdemeanor and once you conceal them it's a felony....
