    Kyrsten and Anna, eh? Probably both women have the same mind set as "Nanny Nappy".

    That bill is to be an addition of a couple paragraphs, to the state statutes already on the books. I guess its off to the Senate Judiciary Committee. for final approval? Then to be OK'ed by Gov. Jan?

    After listening to the archive of the committee passing this bill on, I found it very humorous listening to Ms. Sinema's explanation of why she would vote no.

    She brought up the 2 examples of employees previously bringing guns into the work place and shooting innocent employees. Doesn't she realize that this happened with the existing law that allows employers to deny employees from keeping guns in their cars? Doesn't she realize that this ban did no good anyway, that the criminal did not care that it was against policy and did it anyway?Does she not have any capability of logical thinking?Sheesh....
