Carrying a deadly weapon without a permit pursuant to section 13-3112 concealed within immediate control of any person in or on a means of transportation; F. Subsection A, paragraph 1 of this section shall not apply to a weapon or weapons carried in a belt holster which holster is wholly or partially visible, or carried in a scabbard or case designed for carrying weapons which scabbard or case is wholly or partially visible or carried in luggage. Subsection A, paragraph 2 of this section shall not apply to a weapon or weapons 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.
Case law, particularly State v. Moerman, 182 Ariz, 255, 895 P2.d 1018 (Dec. 13, 1994), Rev. Denied (1995), has created a great deal of uncertainty about permitless carry in containers that may not "reasonably place others on notice that such person is armed." Despite the current ambiguity surrounding permitless carry, most Arizona peace officers seem to believe that if a firearm is carried out of sight within a storage compartment or a glove compartment of a vehicle, without a permit, it must be carried there in a holster.
