    Unless I'm mistaken, you won't need a permit any more...

    You won't need a permit, but getting a permit will allow you to carry into places that serve alcohol, and the arizona permit is recognized in like 30 other states. I just got mine 2 weeks ago because I still see the benefit to have it.

    As an AZ ccw holder, I would advise going to a CCW course. Learning the current law is worth the price of admittance. Not only that, the range time is a hoot. Just be careful there are alot of people taking the course that have no idea about muzzle control.
    Don't tread on me or mine.

    First off welcome to the forum.

    As to getting a permit or not. As long as you don't intend to carry outside of the state of AZ a permit is no longer required. However if you travel and want to carry you will need a permit for reciprocity purposes. Also, if I'm not mistaken, there are still some locations carry will not be permitted without a valid permit. I'm sure some of the AZ members can verify that.

    You're right archer51, there are several places that the CCW will still be required to carry as of July 29th (when the Constitutional Carry law goes into effect). First and foremost are establishments that serve alcohol for consumption on the premises, which means not only bars but restaurants. Second there are several public places like parks and whatnot where CCW can be required by the municipality (though this is not common).

    The CCW also serves as an instant background check for FFL transfers. That makes purchasing a firearm a much faster process. Personally I like that CCW is listed on your registration if you get stopped by the police, because it tells them that you've been background checked and are not violent or a felon. That IMO makes officers feel safer, which makes me safer if I ever get pulled over.

    So for all of that I will be renewing my CCW when the time comes.

    Getting a CCW permit may not be required anymore...but the information and knowledge gained through the class is very valuable. It may save you alot of agony someday to be aware of the laws. IMHO

    Arizona updated its Preemption law when they passed constitutional carry. Cities and Counties will no longer be able by law to post their parks to keep everyone out unless they have a Permit/License to Carry. If you are 21. A US Citizen and can legally own a firearm the only places in AZ you can't carry that a permit holder can is into places that serve alcohol.

    What about this 1000' school zone, a la federal law, that we've been hearing about lately?

    The Federal 1000 foot rule is in effect. Handgunlaw.us has not found one case where this law was applied. Not saying there hasn't been but we can find none. This law is one of those add on laws that they tack on when someone breaks another law in my opinion. Just like selling drugs within 1000 foot of a school. It is just another charge they can tack on to other charges after the arrest for selling drugs.

    AZ is an open carry state and the 1000 ft rule would applies to those who open carry. I haven't heard of one person being arrested and charged with breaking the 1000 ft law when open carrying and in any city if you travel a few blocks in any direction you are going to come close to a school.
    Alaska and Vermont have the same law as AZ will have shortly and have not heard of anything from them on the 1000 ft law causing concerns.

    It would apply to EVERYONE without a license. It doesn't matter if you're CC or OC. If you have your license, you are exempt from the law, and you may OC and CC within 1000 feet.

    I may be mistaken, but I believe that has been changed. I don't think your CCW comes up any more when you license and registration is run.

    YMMV

    It did for the first few years the CCW permits were issued, but as you confirmed what I thought, no longer does.

    YMMV

    I think it always came up in DPS, since they are the issuing body. I'll be keeping my permit since I'm not a US citizen.
