    SB1108 Question

    I know you cannot conceal until 21, but how does SB1108 help 18-20 year olds. What about having your firearm in the glove box?

    Long time lurker, first time poster chiming in here. I too am curious about this as I am 18 years old and in AZ. I have not yet open carried because I do not understand how to legally. Specifically, I don't understand the law regarding vehicles. In what setups can I have my pistol in a vehicle? With the new law, I should be able to carry on my person as a pedestrian so long as part or all of the firearm or holster is visible, right? My carry setup will be either an XD or a 1911 on a belt holster. Can I wear this in a vehicle, or is that illegal?

    People without a permit have always been able to place their firearms in a glove box or center console (as long as they are in a holster), and this includes 18-20 year olds. As far as carrying on your person in your vehicle when you are driving or what not, you are going to get different responses as far as what is "legal". I know this has been posted before and I'm sure someone will help clarify being that I am not as familiar with it as others.

    I may be wrong but based on everything I have read regarding the new CC law, I believe it is now perfectly legal to leave your firearm on your belt while driving. I may be wrong but I have yet to read anything that screams its illegale. If so I hope I dont get stopped tonight cuz its staying on my belt. :P

    Yes you can Snakemathis.........as long as your 21+.

    If your one of us 18-20 year olds, then it has to go in the glovebox while you drive.

    First and foremost, please read the law: http://tinyurl.com/ARS133102 .


    All the prior language (for 21 and over) about belt holster and vehicle carry has been deleted, along with the lanugage making a crime to not have a permit when you carry discreetly (most of the time).

    You can find more at AzCDL's "news" page: http://www.azcdl.org/html/news.html .

    Whoops! I overlooked the part of your question about ages 18-21. You can find the answers in ARS 13-3102.B.1 & B.3 of http://tinyurl.com/ARS133102 .

    Specifically, ARS 13-3102.B.3(e) allows 18-21 year olds to carry a holstered gun in the glove box.

    You both are not completely correct.

    That OR is very important. It means that a firearm can be carried ANYWHERE in the car as long as it is in a case, holster, scabbard, pack, or luggage. If not in any of those, it needs to be in a storage compartment, map pocket, trunk, or glove compartment.

    What I usually do when I am open carrying and enter my vehicle, I take the gun out of the holster on my hip and put it in the glovebox UNHOLSTERED. I do this because I don't like the seatbelt interfering with my gun.

    It's a common misconception.
