Arizona ‘GUN MAP’ Now Available - A first-of-its-kind “GUN MAP” is available now in Arizona, to inform the public where shooting is legal, for training and safety purposes. The 3-foot-by-2-foot full-color map identifies more than 60 spots in the state where target practice is legally sanctioned and encouraged.
The ranges include both indoor and outdoor facilities.
Arizona, which has enacted Constitutional Carry, freeing every law-abiding person in the state to bear arms discreetly or openly without government interference, is encouraging everyone to learn how to shoot safely, to practice those skills, and to enjoy the shooting sports.
Shooting ranges are where the American tradition of marksmanship is practiced, and contribute to preparedness and economic strength.
The shooting sports are the #2 participant sport in the nation, ahead of golf, according to the National Sporting Goods Association, the trade group for the industry. Despite its popularity, it receives less mainstream news attention than other lesser sports. http://www.nsga.org/i4a/pages/index.cfm?pageid=3507
The GUN MAP has been funded in large part by sponsors of the www.TrainMeAZ.com campaign. TrainMeAZ is a statewide effort to increase firearms safety by getting all law-abiding citizens to shooting ranges for training, now that government no longer forces people to take classes for discreet carry.
It is sponsored by the state’s fairly robust firearms industry. The program itself is widely endorsed (see Web site for details, and testimonials ranging from state legislators to the CATO Institute).
Whether you own a gun or not, it is common sense to understand firearms safety and marksmanship, the same as you would water safety, even if you have no pool.
Full-color, large-scale cartography has been done by Wide World of Maps, Inc., the Southwest’s premier map-makers, and includes roads, land ownership, physical features, political boundaries and more.
