Arizona House Passes Bill Allowing Guns On Campuses

Posted by | April 8, 2011 11:35 | Filed under: Top Stories

Arizona continues its march toward crazyville with its latest bill (likely to become law) that allows guns on campuses. Arizona would join Utah as the only states with such a law.

“We’re allowing people to defend themselves,” said Rep. David Gowan Sr., a Republican, who voted for the bill.

“The purpose of carrying a gun with you is to defend yourself against that aggressor,” he added.

The measure now goes to Arizona’s Republican Governor Jan Brewer. She has not said if she will sign it into law but has been a strong gun-rights advocate in the past.

Faculty groups don’t want this, and Rep. Steve Farley, a Democrat, says this law would make it harder to attract top teaching talent. Gov. Jan Brewer is likely to sign the bill, and will also likely incur more legal challenges to her state. All the fiscal conservative taxpayers may want to take note of what Brewer is costing her state with her irresponsible bill signings.
