Please Note:

If not enrolled in one of the CCW/2nd Amendment Lawyer 24/7 programs, make sure to consult a lawyer about a basic statement to have on hand following an incident that you can use until you consult a lawyer.  In AZ there is no "24hr" hold like in the movies.  If you can not contact your lawyer and can not give at least a brief statement giving facts to show it was self defense/defense of another, you will most likely be arrested and booked into jail.

 

-By not contact I mean, they don't answer at night, they don't call back after leaving a message with their answering service, they don't have an answering service on weekends/holidays, etc
