Ariz. House to consider bills on concealed weapons

 .

.

A bill to ease the state’s regulation of concealed weapons permits is scheduled to be considered by the Arizona House on Thursday.

The bill’s provisions include reducing the role of the state Department of Public Safety in certifying the training process.

Those provisions include one to eliminate current requirements that training instructors pay the DPS a fee, submit fingerprints and undergo a federal background check.

Another change would allow a firearm training program using NRA-certified instructors to not have to obtain DPS approval.
