Arizona has some of the weakest gun laws in the nation, earning an F in our Annual Gun Law Scorecard. Arizona repealed its concealed weapons permitting requirement in 2010, allowing anyone 21 or over to carry a hidden, loaded firearm in public without a license. In 2017, Arizona had the 18th-highest gun death rate in the country and exported crime guns at more than twice the national rate. To protect its residents from gun violence, Arizona could enact an extreme risk prevention law and require background checks on all gun purchases.
