Ok guys,

So a friend at work was telling me that he heard that Arizona is going to do away with the CCW permits.
Has anyone else heard this rumor?
He said that in 3 years you wont be able to get one anymore, unless you are grandfathered into it before the law is changed.
Just curious.

There's a lot of things to worry about these days, but I'm pretty sure that one is entirely unfounded.

Unless AZ is going to adopt UNlicensed CCW--that would be 3 states and an improvement overall.

There was some push last legislative session to decriminalize CCW without a license. They weren't doing away with the license option, they were just going to make it so you didn't have to have a license to be able to CC. It died before it made it to the governor. We'll see if it makes it back this next legislative session.

As far as I know, AZ still honors the UT permit. Although NV just dropped the UT permit. Which kinda sucks here because a lot of AZ residents would get the UT permit because NV didn't recognize the AZ one.

I know..right.

Just double checked the AZ DPS website. AZ doesn't have a specific list of permits that they recognize. AZ recognizes any valid CCW permit. Here is the quote from the website.

http://ccw.azdps.gov/reciprocity/default.asp

Arizona recognizes all other states valid permits:

This state and any political subdivision of this state shall recognize a concealed weapon, firearm or handgun permit or license that is issued by another state or a political subdivision of another state if both:

1. The permit or license is recognized as valid in the issuing state.

2. The permit or license holder is all of the following:

(a) Not a resident of this state.

(b) Legally present in this state.

(c) Not legally prohibited from possessing a firearm in this state.

For the purpose of establishing mutual permit or license recognition with other states, the department of public safety shall enter into a written agreement if another state requires a written agreement.

Notwithstanding the provisions of this section, a person with a concealed weapons permit from another state may not carry a concealed weapon in this state if the person is under twenty-one years of age or is under indictment for, or has been convicted of, a felony offense in any jurisdiction, unless the person's rights have been restored and the conviction is expunged, set-aside or vacated and the applicant is currently not a prohibited possessor under state or federal law.
