Technically the answer is yes, since the Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act passed in 2004.  It allows qualified officers to carry in all 50 states.  However, since 95 percent of guns used in other states are illegal to own in CA, they could try and get you on that.  Depends on the officers you're dealing with, which is why I don't go to CA.

My neighbor just texted me.  He's on vacation in CA.  Said he was walking to his truck at beach parking lot, and some dude came up behind him , and signaled to another guy who approached also.

He got to the truck, and grabbed the handgun, asked WTF they wanted, and they took off..

I didn't ask him.  (We'll have more time to talk when he gets back)  But knowing the way Kommiefornia is, I would be surprised if they even allowed concealed carry by an officer from another state.

I know I don't bring any weapons when I go there.  Never even thought about his situation until now.

Can't imagine what statute would apply to prevent a business owner from prohibiting entry into their own premises.  Having worked for 30+ years protecting the rights of property owners, I don't remember ever running into that situation.

The other points you have made are already in discussion, and are stipulated.  The OP asked if there were places where he might need to take certain precautions, to avoid violating the law, and risking arrest.

As you have pointed out, ARS 13 ch 31 is applicable, title 4 is applicable under certain very specific circumstances, and has provisions to confirm the validity of the "request" by the owner to prohibit the possession of firearms on their "onsale" licensed premises.

Arizona does not currently have a statute that overrides 13.3102.A.12 for CCW permit holders on campus grounds.  There is nothing under any statute anywhere in the ARS, that overrides the rights of a property owner from prohibiting any conduct they find to be offencive, including the carry of a firearm.  A sign, with the expressed exclusion of provisions of 4-229, whether factory manufactured, or hand written in crayon, that specifically prohibits the possession of a firearm, carries the weight of law, PERIOD.

Of course private owners can refuse entry, unless it conflicts with other laws we won't get into. But the home made sign or the one approved by the state for liquor license holders by the door does not in itself constitute trespass. And even in a liquor establishment if you have a CCW the sign must be posted by the liquor license on prominent display, not the door, you may enter in order to check for the posting. Those have no legal standing.

No bad info here.  Title 13, Chapter 31 is absolutely relevant, BUT...  These other statutes govern the carry of arms, or any other conduct for that matter, on private property, or on campus carry, which is under 13.3102.A.12 Possessing a deadly weapon on school grounds.

Chapter 31, covers how and who, as it pertains to an individual's rights to possess a weapon, where they can carry as it pertains to public places.  A property owner's rights are sacrosanct, provided they are conducting a lawful enterprise.  So no, there's no bad info, it's all relevant.

OP...some bad info here. Read the Arizona Revised Statutes pertaining to the carrying of weapons, not the liquor or trespass codes.

I don't know why it is so difficult to get my point across.   :facepalm   The sign is the request (order) NOT to enter in the FIRST PLACE.  Unless you comply with the owner's conditions.

OR reasonable notice PROHIBITING entry.

If you are carrying a gun, and you enter an establishment that is displaying a NO GUNS sign, you are trespassing.  You can be arrested, on the spot, as you are already violating not only the law, you are also violating the owner's property rights.

"No guns. No shirt, no shoes, no service.  Take off your hat, and sunglasses.  Remove your burka."  All of these carry the weight of law, they are "reasonable notice."

So what are some things I should be aware of in Arizona related to signing?
I've heard that in some states signs do not carry the weight of law; however, other states like Arizona, the sign is law.

What should I be looking out for and how do I tell if a sign is correct/law and one is incorrect / able to be ignored.

Weelllll...  that 'weight' isn't very heavy.  You're really only in any real trouble if you're asked to leave and you don't.  Then you're trespassing.  That's true with or without a gun, with or without a sign. 

The truth about those sign laws is that they were a just feel-good measure for liquor license holders who didn't want guns in their businesses right around the time when concealed carry in bars was made legal.  It really just reaffirmed a right they already had; to ask you to leave if they want to.

At the end of the day, if you see a sign on a business that they don't want you in there with a gun, then you know they don't want you in there with a gun.  It hardly matters if the sign is regulation or whatever that means.  The end result if you're discovered carrying a gun (intentionally or otherwise) is exactly the same; you get asked to exit the premises.  If you refuse, then you're in trouble.


The only place you might get in immediate trouble without first being told is a state or federal building, like the MVD or a court or the post office.  Just either disarm or stay away from those types of places.

I really wouldn't get to wrapped up on it.

ASU has several liquor licenses.  So those laws can apply depending on where you are on campus.

I was not aware of that.   :hmm

Signage in AZ does carry the force of law.  With the exception of the aforementioned 4-229, which applies to a very specific set of conditions, a sign that says no, means just that... NO!

Arizona Revised Statutes  13-1502. Criminal trespass in the third degree; classification

A. A person commits criminal trespass in the third degree by:

1. Knowingly entering or remaining unlawfully on any real property after a reasonable request to leave by a law enforcement officer, the owner or any other person having lawful control over such property, or reasonable notice prohibiting entry.

2. Knowingly entering or remaining unlawfully on the right-of-way for tracks, or the storage or switching yards or rolling stock of a railroad company.

B. Pursuant to subsection A, paragraph 1 of this section, a request to leave by a law enforcement officer acting at the request of the owner of the property or any other person having lawful control over the property has the same legal effect as a request made by the property owner or other person having lawful control of the property.

C. Criminal trespass in the third degree is a class 3 misdemeanor.

A sign prohibiting guns is the same as a "No Trespassing" sign.  Other statutes may apply, but that is the minimum.
