Senate committee to consider guns-rights measure

A major piece of gun-rights legislation is scheduled for consideration by a state Senate committee on Monday.

The bill’s provisions include one allowing to take a gun into a controlled-access public building unless the public entity meets stringent conditions.

Those include having armed security personnel protecting the site, screening visitors with metal detectors and having lockboxes available for securing visitors’ weapons.

Other provisions deal with disclosures to law enforcement officers and shooting guns within municipalities.

The bill sponsored by Republican Sen. Ron Gould of Lake Havasu City and fellow lawmakers is on the Senate Judiciary Committee’s agenda. Gould is chairman of that committee.
