    printer friendly version

    Question: i live in a house with a back yard and i own a pellet gun. my neighbors dont like it when i shoot my pellet gun and they always call the cops on me. i want to know if from town to town the law changes cause the cop told me it might be illegal. ps i live in youngtown if that makes a differenc

    Answer: Your pellet gun is considered a gun. Discharging it within the city limits, assuming you load it with pellets (or BBs or any projectile) is against Arizona law. There are some exceptions, but in your case they probably don't apply, (ARS 13-3107).

    Cities do not have the right to make laws on this matter, and Arizona state law prohibits the firing of a weapon in city limits. If you are firing at a house or apartment where someone lives, (which may happen even if you don't mean to) you are breaking a state law (ARS 13-1211). It is illegal to fire at any building in this state, regardless of if someone lives there. There is also an Arizona state law that makes it a crime to damage someone's property, and if your pellet puts a hole in their property it is considered damage (ARS 13-602).

    You should only fire the gun outside city limits or at a firing range with adult supervision.

    John Learn to vote, it's the only way to change ridiculous laws. Look into suing your neighbors for undue hardship, ect for killing your pet. Thankfully ridiculous laws have to go in front of a jury of real people and sometimes you can luck out. If people want to abuse the law, fight back with it. I am truly sorry for your situation. ~Sol
