After tragedy, Ariz. lawmakers eye more gun rights

Posted:

PHOENIX (WKOW) -- Arizona legislators who want more rights for gun owners are continuing their efforts, following the shooting rampage that wounded U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.

State lawmakers have passed bill after bill to protect the people's right to have a gun nearly anywhere, at anytime.

The Legislature's session began two days after the Jan. 8 shooting, and gun rights legislation has already been proposed. One bill would allowing college and university faculty members to carry concealed weapons on campus.

Giffords is a former state legislator. The Democrat was critically wounded when she was shot in the head at a meet-and-greet in Tucson.
