    AZ governor vetoes gun laws

    Among the five bills Napolitano vetoed was one that would have allowed people to take guns into public events and buildings if the operator doesn't provide individually locked storage spaces for weapons.

    Napolitano said she vetoed the bill because its amendments to a 2006 law were "premature." She said that law, which requires operators banning weapons to provide storage places for them, has been successfully implemented so far.

    Napolitano also vetoed a bill that would have imposed new state regulatory oversight of railroad projects in the state and a bill that would have made a 2006 self-defense law retroactive, requiring a number of cases to be retried.

    "Any bill that would force the retrial of a serious criminal and force the victims of the crime to again relive their experience must be viewed with great skepticism," Napolitano said in a statement.

    The 2006 law requires prosecutors to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that a self-defense claim is unfounded. Before, defendants had to prove that they acted to protect themselves.


    Unless Napolitano was misquoted, the 2006 retroactive law was SB 1302 and had absolutely nothing to do with SB 1251, which was the storage bill.

    The AZ governor again demonstrates her inability to provide leadership for law abiding gun owners and their right to defend themselves.

    Any chance for an override, or is it the case under the Arizona constitution that once the legislature has adjourned, they cannot come back into session?

    So did she veto both bills? (SB 1302- the retroactive bill; or just SB 1251- the storage bill?)

    Better than here-they're still considering repealing the 10r rule

    Janeo in action

    Since her re-election (and I voter for her) Janeo sees no reason to help the gun owners or most any conservative cause and every reason to pander to the left...she is looking for a job in a possible liberal president's administration!

    There aren't enough conservative votes in the legislature to override her veto. However, after what we've seen since last election, I think there will be enough conservative votes to keep another lib out of the state house next election.
