Arizona Citizens Defense League

Protecting Your Freedom

If you want to protect your Right to Keep and Bear Arms in Arizona, then you want to join the Arizona Citizens Defense League (AzCDL)

AzCDL is where grassroots activists take a stand, working at the Arizona legislature to get strong pro-rights bills written and passed into law, while stopping bad bills.

AzCDL believes that the emphasis of gun laws should be on criminal misuse and that law-abiding citizens should be able to own and carry firearms unaffected by unnecessary laws or regulations.

Towards that end, we are pursuing the following Arizona legislative improvements.

  • “Freedom to Carry” – Restore and protect the right of law-abiding citizens to carry a firearm openly or discreetly anywhere they have a right to be.
  • Fewer restrictions on the lawful carrying of firearms on Public property (state and local government buildings, parks, etc.).
  • “Restaurant Carry” – The ability of law-abiding citizens to dine out while carrying a firearm.
  • Continued strengthening and preservation of the right of presumed innocence in self-defense situations.
  • Strong State Preemption – Firearms laws should be consistent throughout the State.
  • Liability responsibility for property owners who ban firearms.
  • Continued improvements to CCW laws.

How much is “Protecting Your Freedom” worth?

The Arizona Citizens Defense League (AzCDL) is a non-profit 501(c)(4) and was founded by a group of local activists who recognized that a sustained, coordinated, statewide effort was critical to restoring and protecting the rights of law-abiding gun owners.
