Private Sales in Arizona

Posted on January 3, 2012

Arizona has no law requiring a background check on the purchaser of a firearm when the seller is not a licensed dealer, although no person may knowingly sell or transfer a deadly weapon to a prohibited possessor.1 All sales are also subject to Arizona’s age restrictions. Arizona has no other laws regulating the manner in which guns are sold.

See our Private Sales Policy Summary for a comprehensive discussion of this issue.
