Ariz. Senate considers gun rights expansion bill

The Arizona Senate will consider a bill that would prevent most government agencies from banning guns in their buildings and events unless they install airport-style security screening.

The proposed law also contains several other provisions favored by gun rights advocates. They include a prohibition on lawsuits against guns dealers or manufacturers stemming from shootings and a requirement that guns seized by law enforcement be sold and not destroyed.

The bill exempts schools, universities, courthouses and police stations from the public buildings where gun owners would be allowed to carry their weapons.

Public buildings and events could only ban firearms if metal detectors were installed, armed security guards or police present and lockboxes available for gun owners to secure their weapons.
