Well, it passed the Arizona Legislature. Now it’s awaiting the Governor’s signature, veto, or for her to do nothing, which allows it to become law.
(from the Az. Republic)
The Arizona Legislature has given its final approval to a measure that will require state and local governments to either allow guns in public facilities or secure those buildings with metal detectors and armed guards.
The final version of the firearms omnibus applies to government-owned pools, libraries, community centers and offices. It does not apply to privately sponsored events such as professional sports games or concerts held at multipurpose facilities, even if the facilities are a public-private partnership.
SB 1201 does not apply to K-12 public schools. Technically, it would allow guns on state university and community-college campuses. But it does not override a separate statute that allows colleges to make gun regulations. SB 1467 does change that statute. It would require the governing boards to allow firearms on campus rights-of-way, but not inside buildings. Brewer has until Monday to take action on it.
