ASU’s Michael Crow urges Gov. Brewer to veto gun bill
Published: April 8, 2011 at 3:10 pm
The bill would bar state universities and community colleges from prohibiting the carrying of weapons on public rights of way on campuses.
Both chambers of the Legislature have passed the bill. It could reach Brewer’s desk on Monday.
Crow says allowing guns on campuses endangers students and visitors. He says police could have trouble quickly identifying a shooter if more than one person is armed.
Supporters say people should be allowed to carry weapons to protect themselves.
The bill originally allowed holders of concealed weapons permits to take concealed weapons into classrooms.
The bill doesn’t define rights of way, but one legislative supporter says it would apply to streets and sidewalks.
