Arizona House approved bill allowing guns on university campuses

On April 8, 2011, the Arizona House of Representatives approved a bill that would allow lawful possession of guns on the public right-of-ways of university campuses. The 33-24 House vote was preceded by a vote in the Arizona Senate, which approved the bill after it was amended to prohibit allowing guns inside of campus buildings. The bill was approved approximately three months after the January 2011 shootings in Tucson, Arizona, which killed six people and wounded 13 others, including Arizona District Court Chief Judge John Roll and US Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords.
