Legislation allowing the carrying of a concealed weapon in bars has passed the Arizona senate 19-8. The bill has now landed on the Governor's desk and will be presumably signed as Governor Jan Brewer is a supporter of gun rights.
The law states that someone can enter a bar in Arizona with a concealed weapon, however they are unable to drink alcohol. "It's very important that criminals are now afraid rather than law abiding citizens," Senator Jack Harper, the bill's sponsor, said.
This proves complicated for people behind the bar as they will either have to check every patron for a concealed weapon or serve drinks unknowingly to people that are carrying weapons.
