The Arizona House on Thursday considers legislation that would make Arizona the third state allowing people to carry concealed weapons without a permit.

The House is expected to amend its version of the bill to match a version poised for a final vote in the Senate.

The legislation would make it legal for any U.S. citizen 21 or older to carry a concealed weapon in Arizona without the permit now required. Currently, carrying a hidden firearm without a permit is a misdemeanor punishable by up to six months in jail and a fine of up to $2,500.

If the legislation is enacted, Arizona would join Alaska and Vermont in not requiring permits to carry concealed weapons.

    While it is closer to the intent of Amendment 2, that wasn’t written in modern times. Allowing concealed carry without the minimal requirements that states like Florida and Georgia have is absurd, in my opinion. What do the law enforcement officers think about this???
