Representative Harper has “pre-filed” a Campus Carry bill, HB 2014:
HB 2014 prohibits colleges and universities from enacting or enforcing any rule that prohibits discreetly carried firearms by anyone who possesses a valid CCW permit.
We expect to see more Campus Carry bills filed once the session officially starts later this month.
Stay tuned! When critical legislation moves, we will notify you via these Alerts.

One small step for CWPers, once giant step for Arizona. Lets hope it passes in a way that still makes it useful.
Jon Justice was hittin' on this bill (104.1 FM) this morning. Unfortunately he referenced the NRA instead of AzCDL... I called in and mentioned that... as well as the AZ Constitution (Sec 2 Art 26) ratified in 1912 and full statewide premption. Who owns the colleges? The state. Who crafts the law IAW the constitution? The state. Campus security... UofA Police Chief (et al) does NOT... CANNOT create law. Nothing is 100%... but it's better than 0%. Besides... the presence of firearms on campus has to serve as a deterrent to any would-be nut.
I forgot that it was an "AzCDL-requested" bill until I talked to Dave, AzCDL's Prez & chief lobbyists last night. I'm expecting to see a couple more Campus Carry bills. For the last couple of years, these bills were dead on arrival. Now, everyone wants to get in on the action. It will still be a hard fight with predictions of hormonally charged "children" (the 21 year olds with the CCW permits) on a shooting rampage througout the campus.
Those of us who live in Tucson, where the U of A is in the center of town with traffic running through it, run afoul of the current law by simply turning on the "wrong" street in our daily travels.
If you are not subscribed to AzCDL's Alerts, I urge you to do so. Once the session gets going next week, I won't have time to cross post on this forum. For those of you who get AzCDL's Alerts, feel free to cross post here.

Justice is an urbanite Californian as far as i can determine. It's a wonder he's not a pinko. It's easy enough to determine AZ gun law... or anywhere's gun law. It's not rocket science.
