    This...

    G. NOTWITHSTANDING SUBSECTION D OF THIS SECTION, THE GOVERNING BOARD OF ANY UNIVERSITY, COLLEGE OR COMMUNITY COLLEGE SHALL NOT ENACT OR ENFORCE ANY POLICY OR RULE THAT PROHIBITS THE POSSESSION OF A CONCEALED WEAPON BY A PERSON WHO POSSESSES A VALID PERMIT RECOGNIZED OR ISSUED PURSUANT TO SECTION 13-3112 OR THE TRANSPORTATION OR STORAGE OF A FIREARM PURSUANT TO SECTION 12-781.

    is great news...hope it passes!

    Good luck to you. I hope we can get it here in FL as well. Where is TX at? I hope the open carry guys don't decide to make CCC an adversary again.

    So is the current law in AZ to ban firearms on campuses at the state level, or is it currently up to the local campus to decide for themselves?

    Since we no longer require a permit to carry concealed, but the state will still issue you one if you apply take the class ETC. I am wondering if this means you have to obtain a CCW permit to carry on campus.

    Of course if it passes and is signed into law>

    Yes, according to the language of the bill, this adds college campuses to the list of places that you can carry with a permit.

    This would put a campus in the same status as as place that serves Alcohol. You would have to have a CCW!

    There is no law prohibiting carry on campuses, but the AZ board of regents (who sets policy for the 3 AZ state universities and the community colleges) has a strict no firearms policy. This bill would prohibit that for CCW holders, so it's good news and should pass and be signed. I teach at a private college in AZ and faculty are allowed to carry there because there are no state laws on carry on college campus.

    Thanks. I was wondering how that compares to things here in WA, and it sounds exactly the same, except the 'no firearms' policy is set by the school administration.

    It's that way here in SD as well (not illegal, but mandated by the Regents). Might have to copy and paste that wording and send it on to my state legislators.

    The only common sense gun legislation was written about 224 years ago.

    I carry always not because I go places trouble is likely, but because trouble has a habit of not staying in its assigned zone.

    Another poll they'll try to use against us in legislative session

    ABC poll-Should self defense be allowed on College Campuses

    Should Guns be Allowed on College Campuses?

    Results broken down by State

    So far, no one wants the right to defend themselves on college campuses.

    Spread the word ... and vote


    Problem is when they put out a call to action, they ALL respond, but when I post polls used against us like last time in legislative hearings I get replies of "oh those aren't scientific polls, they are useless so I won't bother"

    So, a "Slam dunk" turns into
    January polling showed that 67% of registered voters in Texas oppose the legislation. A referendum of students at Texas A&M University showed consistent opposition for the second year in a row
    Students for Gun-Free Schools in Texas
    You think it was a biased push poll? it was, it's an outright lie, but what do legislators HEAR? "POLL RESULTS"

    Those guys work year-round promoting their cause, while most campus carry supporters work 40 times harder for a few months every 2 years trying to re-educate the ones they lost to repetitive brainwashing over 2 years.


    NO NEED TO REGISTER to vote, only if you want to post comments

    Spread the word ... and vote
