Later this summer, Arizona will become the third state to allow citizens to exercise their God-given, constitutionally enshrined right to bear arms without intrusive government licensing. Governor Jan Brewer signed the legislation today:

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

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

By eliminating the permit requirement, the Arizona legislation will allow people 21 or older to forego background checks and classes that are now required.

Another one down, 47 to go. Anyone in the Tennessee legislature listening?
