Concealing Weapons Just Got Easier In Arizona

Via Yahoo News, this gem:

PHOENIX – Favoring the constitutional right to bear arms over others' concerns about gun safety, Gov. Jan Brewer on Friday signed into law a bill making Arizona the third state allowing people to carry a concealed weapon without requiring a permit.

The measure takes effect 90 days after the current legislative session ends, which likely puts the effective date in July or August.

"I believe this legislation not only protects the Second Amendment rights of Arizona citizens, but restores those rights as well," Brewer, a Republican, said in a statement.

Alaska and Vermont now do not require permits to carry concealed weapons.

So now all sorts of freaks and crazies can get guns much more easily in Arizona.

It'll be interesting to see whether that changes the crime rate or incidence of gun violence. What do you think will happen?
