    So says Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich, in a formal opinion:

    State and federal law do not prohibit an individual that holds an Arizona Concealed Carry Weapons Permit from carrying a concealed handgun on private school grounds in Arizona. Additionally, State and federal law permit individuals to possess firearms in school zones for use in a program approved by the private school….


    [Footnote:] This opinion is limited to the question whether private schools may permit firearms on campus. It does not consider the extent to which such schools may choose to bar firearms as an exercise of their private property rights. See e.g. GeorgiaCarry.Org, Inc. v. Georgia, 687 F.3d 1244, 1264 (11th Cir. 2012) (“Quite simply, there is no constitutional infirmity when a private property owner exercises his, her, or its … right to control who may enter, and whether that invited guest can be armed.”).

    [Footnote:] Among other criteria, eligible applicants for an Arizona CCW must be twenty-one years of age or older (with some exceptions for nineteen and twenty year olds with military service), must not be under indictment for a felony offense, must not be a felon (with some exceptions for the conviction being set aside), must not suffer from mental illness, must not be a prohibited possessor pursuant to A.R.S. § 13-3101(A)(7) [which covers a few other narrow classes of people], and must complete a firearms safety training program ….
    A step in the Right direction, though I'm sure there will be plenty of fearmongering on behalf of the antis.
    I carry to defend my loved ones; Desensitizing and educating are secondary & tertiary reasons. Anything else is unintended.

    It's too bad my 2A rights don't exist on the public property of taxpayer-funded schools, like they're supposed to...
