    Since Constitutional Carry came in.....?

    Do city and county governments (state too I guess) have the option to restrict carry in their buildings and meeting places?

    Correct, but if they do they must provide secure, on-premises storage.

    Surprised for how pro gun Arizona is they don't provide full preemption for that. Oh well being able to have storage is better than many.
    "No state shall convert a liberty to a privilege, license it, and charge a fee therefor.- Murdock vs Pennsylvania 319 US 105

    ...If the state converts a right into a privelege, the citizen can ignore the license and fee and engage in the right... with impunity.
    - Shuttleworth vs City of Birmingham, Alabama 317 US 262

    Where rights secured by the Constitution are involved, there can be no legislation which would abrogate them.

    We tried last year to pass a bill saying gov't buildings could only restrict carry in facilities with metal detectors and armed guards, but didn't quite make it.

    As others have stated, the answer is yes. The law predates Constitutional Carry.

    Read page 4 of AzCDL's November 2011 newsletter. The image of freedom in Arziona doesn't match reality. We're working to overcome years of apathy and Californication.
