Arizona Rated Best State for Concealed Carry!

Arizona rated best state for Concealed Carry!

Once again, Guns and Ammo magazine rated Arizona as the #1 state for gun owners, this time for Concealed Carry laws.

States were rated on their concealed carry laws using the following criteria:

​Method of Issuance. With Constitutional Carry, Arizona received the maximum score of 25 points.

Reciprocity. Based on the states that recognize Arizona’s permit and Arizona’s universal recognition of other states’ permits, we received an 18 out of a possible 20 points.

Training Time. With Constitutional Carry, Arizona received 10 out of a possible 10 points.

Application Fee. With Constitutional Carry, Arizona received 5 out of a possible 5 points.

Stand Your Ground / Castle Doctrine. 10 out of a possible 10 points.

“Best States for Gun Owners” rating. Since Arizona was top rated by Guns and Ammo magazine 2 years in a row, we received the maximum 10 points.

Duty to Inform. Arizona has no requirement to immediately inform law enforcement that a person is carrying, giving us 5 out of a possible 5 points.

Preemption. Even though we feel there is room for improvement, Arizona received a top score of 5 when compared to other states.

Nonresident Permit Issuance. 5 out of a possible 5.

A “perfect” score in this rating was 95 points. Because Arizona has Constitutional Carry we received the maximum score in all relevant categories. Our total score of 93 reflects the inequity of recognition and reciprocity laws of other states.

All you need to do is look at AzCDL’s accomplishments to see why we are consistently rated #1 for gun owners.

We are proud that AzCDL’s efforts, with your support, have again garnered this high rating for Arizona from such a prestigious publication. However, from our perspective, there is a lot more that needs to be done to make Arizona truly a free state when it comes to honoring your constitutionally protected right to bear arms. With your continued support we can achieve that goal.

AZCDL Firearm Raffle!

AzCDL is raffling off 3 sound suppressed pistol packages

Each package contains a Ruger 22/45 .22 caliber pistol with a threaded barrel and a Tactical Solutions Cascade sound suppressor. AzCDL will also pay the $200 Federal Transfer Tax required for suppressor ownership, for qualified winners.

Only 900 tickets have been printed and each ticket represents 3 chances to win. Tickets are $10 each and can be purchased at gun shows and other events where AzCDL has a table. Tickets may also be purchased at AzCDL’s online store:

Online Store

The drawing for all three pistols will be held at the annual meeting on October 11, 2014. Tickets for the annual meeting can also be purchased at our online store.

Winners do not have to be present for the drawing. However, winners must comply with all federal, state, and local laws, and must pick up the firearms from a federally licensed (FFL) firearms dealer. If a winner does not qualify for possession of the sound suppressor, only the firearm will be transferred. In some jurisdictions, possession of a firearm with a threaded barrel is illegal. In cases where we cannot transfer the winning pistol, no substitution will be made and the winner waives all rights to the firearm. If the winner does not qualify under federal, state, or local law for the possession of these firearms, their ticket is invalid and a new winner will be drawn.

AzCDL is self-funded and fiercely independent. We are beholden to no political party. No outsiders, no sugar daddies, no corporate string pullers, and no New York billionaires. We do not flood your mailbox or email in-box with “the sky is falling, send money” messages like many other organizations. Raffles are our fundraisers. Help support AzCDL – buy raffle tickets!
