It is a shame really. Many of these teachers and faculty and staff etc live a long ways from the school and have to travel the entire distance and places they go before and after school just to obey the existing law.
Yes, still in committee. I think it will be ammended as well or just killed altogether.
What really sucks is that it only takes one legislator to kill a bill.
Yes... a typical move it to contest a bill. And all it takes is one member who can get two others to join in and contest a Bill. Then it takes either a super majority (the number and method escapes me right off hand) to bring it to the floor or it has to lay in wait until they take up the Contested Calender at the end of all other bills. Well... they rarely, if ever, have time to even take on the Contested Calender. And so it dies. It will be automatically held over until the next legislative year, while remaining on the contested calender but then, if its not forced out that second year it dies completely and has to be reintroduced.
So just a couple can completely block and stall a Bill and it takes more than a couple to get it going again.
It looks like so long as the vehicle is locked you may keep the weapon inside the vehicle if it is unattendedSection 16-23-430. (1)(A) It shall be unlawful for any person, except state, county, or municipal law enforcement officers or personnel authorized by school officials, to carry on his person, while on any elementary or secondary school property, a knife, with a blade over two inches long, a blackjack, a metal pipe or pole, firearms, or any other type of weapon, device, or object which may be used to inflict bodily injury or death.
(B) This section does not apply to a person who is authorized to carry a concealed weapon pursuant to Article 4, Chapter 31, Title 23 when the weapon remains inside an attended or locked motor vehicle and is secured in a closed glove compartment, closed console, closed trunk, or in a closed container secured by an integral fastener and transported in the luggage compartment of the vehicle.
I come from the Reagan school of thought...

I hope that happens here as well in AZ. Nothing gets me more irate than not being allowed to CC in a restaurant that serves alcohol.
Its just another no-gun zone that will allow criminals to come in and have their way. I don't even need to drink, just maybe have a good burger.
