Channel 13 in Arizona notes
The Arizona Senate has reversed itself and voted to allow people with concealed-carry permits to take handguns into restaurants that serve alcohol.
The Senate approved the bill on a 18-10 vote on Tuesday, one day after the chamber defeated it on a 14-14 tie when one supporter was absent.
State law now generally bans possession of firearms in bars and restaurants selling alcohol.
Under the bill, a permit-holder carrying a weapon into a restaurant serving alcohol would not be allowed to drink. It would allow restaurants to deny entry by gun-toting citizens by posting a sign. . . . .
