    I found quite a bit of overall useful information,and I thought this link could be helpful to some here.

    http://www.handgunlaw.us/states/arizona.pdf

    If you're interested in another state, just replace arizona with your state of choice.

    I orginally was searching for anything specific regarding OCing in the local credit union or bank, either Federal or State. On the WV OC forum, I found within, this definition:

    Federal Building defined in U.S. Code Title 18, Part 1 Chapter 44:

    (g) As used in this section:
    (1) The term “Federal facility” means a building or part thereof owned or leased by the Federal Government, where Federal employees are regularly present for the purpose of performing their official duties.

    Here's the link to the WV question regarding the same question I have regarding CUs and banks:


    http://opencarry.mywowbb.com/forum56/27310.html A very interesting read about what's Federal and what's not.

    Anyone havespecificreferences to Federal laws?

    It's got some glaring errors. I'd recommend not using it.

    Here's a few that I saw off hand.

    Prohibitions on carrying firearms in these venues apply to both open and concealed carry.
    · Any establishment licensed to serve alcohol for on-premises consumption (e.g., a bar or restaurant,
    but not a liquor store or supermarket that sells alcoholic beverages in sealed containers).

    A CCW permittee will be allowed to CC as long as they do not drink. I would normally leave this alone seeing there is a brand new law and figured they haven't incorporated this yet, but then I saw this:

    Parking Lots: SB 1168 signed by the Governor will prohibit property and business owners from banning guns from parking areas, so long as the weapons are kept locked in privately owned vehicles. The law exempts parking lots that are fenced or guarded, as well as those that provide secure gun storage.

    Display of Firearm: SB 1243 signed by the Governor allows any individual who feels threatened to indicate that they're carrying a weapon without violating intimidation statutes. The law only applies for instances of self-defense.

    The second one is wrong- or rather incomplete. Either way if someone reading were to think that this is the current law, they'd get into a lot of trouble- those two don't go into affect until 9/30/2009

    Finally there's this gem:


    Note: Carry in State/County/City parks is legal if it is not posted with a No Firearms sign. If it is posted
    you cannot carry there legally even with a permit.


    WRONG WRONG WRONG

    Moral of the story? Inform yourself and don't count on others to tell you the law.

    Points well-taken...I agree.

    I found the 'contact us' email to be admins@handgunlaw.us if you'd care to help them put forth more correct information. If they are putting out miss-construed info, it should be corrected.

    Thanks, Dawg.

    Hmm.. I guess if I would have looked more closely at the rest of the website I'd have seen it too. I'll give them a holla see what comes of it.

    I find the following link to be the best place to review weapons laws for Arizona.

    Pertinent section is Chapter 31
