Senate approves guns in public buildings bill

.

The Arizona Senate has approved a bill allowing a person to carry a gun into a public building or event unless law enforcement or armed security is present.

Republican Sen. Steve Smith of Maricopa sponsored the bill and says if there’s no armed protection in those spaces, citizens shouldn’t have to give up their 2nd Amendment right to bear arms.

The measure was approved by an 18-12 vote on Thursday with three Republicans joining Democrats to oppose the measure.

It now goes to the House.

A similar bill is scheduled to be heard in the House on Thursday.
