    Where to find state codes? AZ

    Where would I look up the specific codes for the state of arizona? specifically ARS 13-1302 Misconduct with a weapon. IT was posted on a NO DANGEROUS WEAPONS sign at a city park and I want to read up on it. The police dept. said the no weapons policy applied to ccw carries as well but i think they are wrong.


    Can local governments make more restrictive gun laws than the state level laws in AZ?

    Google it. Check your statute because what comes up for 13-1302 doesn't seem to apply to your question.

    Here's a link to start with.

    It's Chapter 13-3102, subsection A, paragraph 10:

    10. Unless specifically authorized by law, entering any public establishment or attending any public event and carrying a deadly weapon on his person after a reasonable request by the operator of the establishment or the sponsor of the event or the sponsor's agent to remove his weapon and place it in the custody of the operator of the establishment or the sponsor of the event for temporary and secure storage of the weapon pursuant to section 13-3102.01

    I believe the sign constitutes a "reasonable request" to not carry. What is a little less clear to me is the next part that requires them to "check" it for you while you are there. I would like to see what an Attorney would have to say about that requirement, if it really is one...

    It seems pretty clear to me that if they tell you that you can't have a weapon in the park, that they have to provide a secure place to store it while you are there. But I am usually surprised to find out how a court ruling has twisted an otherwise straight-forward law.

    I'm not sure which restriction you are refering to, However here are some statutes that you should know.

    If your at a scheduled event at a park (concert, company picnic, flea market..what ever) the sponsors of that event that scheduled the use of the public park can ask you to leave the event or not be armed when you attend it.


    13-3102 Para 10

    Unless specifically authorized by law, entering any public establishment or attending any public event and carrying a deadly weapon on his person after a reasonable request by the operator of the establishment or the sponsor of the event or the sponsor's agent to remove his weapon and place it in the custody of the operator of the establishment or the sponsor of the event for temporary and secure storage of the weapon pursuant to section 13-3102.01

    "Public event" means a specifically named or sponsored event of limited duration either conducted by a public entity or conducted by a private entity with a permit or license granted by a public entity. Public event does not include an unsponsored gathering of people in a public place.


    Otherwise the local goverment cannot make laws prohibiting firearms

    Arizona Revised Statutes 13-3108

    A. Except as provided in subsection C of this section, a political subdivision of this state shall not enact any ordinance, rule or tax relating to the transportation, possession, carrying, sale, transfer or use of firearms or ammunition or any firearm or ammunition components in this state.

    Subsection C Par 5

    Limiting firearms possession in parks or preserves of one square mile or less in area to persons who possess a concealed weapons permit issued pursuant to section 13-3112. The political subdivision shall post reasonable notice at each park or preserve. The notice shall state the following: "Carrying a firearm in this park is limited to persons who possess a permit issued pursuant to section 13-3112." In parks or preserves that are more than one square mile in area, a political subdivision may designate developed or improved areas in which the political subdivision may limit firearms possession to persons who possess a concealed weapons permit issued pursuant to section 13-3112. The political subdivision shall post reasonable notice at each designated developed or improved area. The notice shall state the following: "Carrying a firearm in this developed or improved area is limited to persons with a permit issued pursuant to section 13-3112." For the purposes of this paragraph, "developed or improved area" means an area of property developed for public recreation or family activity, including picnic areas, concessions, playgrounds, amphitheaters, racquet courts, swimming areas, golf courses, zoos, horseback riding facilities and boat landing and docking facilities. Developed or improved area does not include campgrounds, trails, paths or roadways except trails, paths and roadways directly associated with and adjacent to designated developed or improved areas. Any notice that is required by this paragraph shall be conspicuously posted at all public entrances and at intervals of one-fourth mile or less where the park, preserve or developed or improved area has an open perimeter. Any limitation imposed by a political subdivision pursuant to this paragraph shall not apply to a person:

    The City of Tucson passed a law a while back prohibiting firearms in parks and got sued and lost, this law was a compromise.

    If an officer told you you cannot possess a firearm in a park (not during an event that is posted or you have had notice) and you have a permit. He is simply wrong. Refer him to ARS13-3108

    It also appears the signs are improperly sign. The statue is specific about how the sign should be posted. The notice shall state the following: "Carrying a firearm in this park is limited to persons who possess a permit issued pursuant to section 13-3112." or in a larger park "Carrying a firearm in this developed or improved area is limited to persons with a permit issued pursuant to section 13-3112."
    "Arms in the hands of individual citizens may be used at individual discretion..in private self defense." John Adams

    If you live in Arizona, you really should pick up a copy of The Arizona Gun Owner's Guide. gunlaws.com / Bloomfield Press. The Arizona Legislature's website has all of the criminal code for your own due diligence. Arizona Revised Statutes

    Typically if your state has a preemption law, localities cannot enact more restrictive laws than the state.
