Guns in Vehicles in Arizona

Arizona's 2010 law regarding the carrying of concealed weapons eliminated the requirement of a concealed weapons permit for a person who carries a concealed weapon within his or her immediate control in or on a means of transportation in Arizona. The person must be age 21 or older, and the person must accurately answer if a peace officer, who is detaining the person based on reasonable suspicion of an offense, asks whether he or she is carrying a concealed weapon. However, even these requirements do not apply to a weapon carried in a case, holster, scabbard, pack or luggage that is carried within a means of transportation or within a storage compartment, map pocket, trunk or glove compartment of a means of transportation.

Arizona enacted a law in 2009 that limits property owners' ability to prevent the presence of firearms in parking lots on their properties. According to the new law, a property owner, tenant, public or private employer or business entity may not establish, maintain, or enforce a policy or rule that prohibits lawfully transporting or storing a firearm in a locked motor vehicle or in a locked compartment on a motorcycle, so long as the firearm is not visible from the outside.
