Arizona on a party line vote advances bill to end campus gun free zones

Legislation to end gun free zone on Arizona campuses draws fire.

KINGMAN - Several state senators want a bill passed that allows college students to carry guns on campuses.

Four Republican members of a Senate Judiciary Committee, including Sen. Ron Gould, R-Lake Havasu City, voted to pass along legislation that would allow people with a concealed weapons permit to carry a gun onto Mohave Community College, Northern Arizona University and the other community colleges and universities in the state.

The three Democrats on the judiciary committee voted against the proposed legislation. The Senate bill, SB 1214, now goes to the Senate Rules Committee. The bill had included all schools, including elementary to high schools, but the bill was revised for colleges only. . . . .
