AZ approves "Vermont style" concealed carry
Story here. It now goes to the governor, who will likely sign it. Egad, for most of my life AZ followed the rule of most western States -- carry openly without limit, but nobody except a peace officer can carry concealed, and there are no permits, either. Not that it really made any difference, since CCW without a permit was a misdemeanor punished with a modest fine and seizure of the gun, or the person could plead to a larger fine and get the gun back. A person bent upon committing a violent crime was unlikely to worry much about a misdemeanor and fine.
