Arizona Board of Regents wants to Keep Universities as Gun Fee Zones
TUCSON - The Arizona Board of Regents has approved a resolution reaffirming its position that the state's university campuses should be weapons free.
The resolution, passed unanimously Friday at the regents' meeting in Tempe, was a response to a bill advancing in the state Legislature that would allow any person with a concealed-carry permit to possess a concealed firearm on university and community college campuses.
Weapons are currently banned by law on campuses.
The bill was approved by the state Senate Judiciary Committee after it was amended to exclude K-12 schools.
