Firearm Purchase

Private sales of firearms between individuals generally do not require a background check.


Firearm Possession in Arizona

In Arizona, individuals who are at least 18 years old can possess firearms, including long guns.

Individuals who are at least 21 years old can possess handguns without any additional requirements.


Firearm Carry (Concealed Carry)


Arizona is a "Constitutional Carry" state, meaning that it allows the open or concealed carry of firearms without a permit for individuals who are at least 18 years old and legally allowed to possess firearms. You may still obtain a concealed permit called Concealed Weapons Permits (CWPs) to residents and non-residents who are at least 21 years old and meet certain eligibility requirements. With a valid CWP, individuals can carry concealed firearms throughout the state, including in public places, unless explicitly prohibited by law (e.g., schools, government buildings, etc.).


Is Open Carry Legal in Arizona?


Open carry of firearms is generally allowed in Arizona without a permit for individuals who are at least 18 years old and legally allowed to possess firearms.

Some restrictions may apply to carrying firearms in specific locations, such as schools, public establishments that serve alcohol, and private property where firearms are prohibited. It's important to be aware of any local ordinances or restrictions regarding open carry, as some cities or municipalities may have additional regulations.


Prohibited Persons

Certain individuals are prohibited from possessing firearms under both federal and Arizona state law. This includes convicted felons, individuals with domestic violence convictions, individuals with restraining orders, and those adjudicated as mentally ill or committed to a mental institution.
