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.
