Growth in Arizona Gun Law
You've heard the speculation and nonsense.
Here's the math:
These are the word counts for the law section, Appendix D, of this and previous editions of The Arizona Gun Owner's Guide. The increases are caused by two factors—the discovery and inclusion of new sections of gun law (e.g., security guards, game and fish department, military affairs and emergency management, etc.), and the enactment of new laws by the state legislature, which has been occurring every year in recent times. Reductions, through amendments and repeals, also occur, but the net difference has been an increase since we began doing tracking. Gun laws are growing nationally, with no end in sight. Our gun laws here have tripled in 20 years. Politicians who claim they can’t pass more gun laws are either ignorant or deceptive, which is worse.
