    Does "public establishment" include a privately owned store open to the public?

    I'm pretty sure Brewer vetoed this last week. She is not accepting any bills for consideration right now unless they are directly related to the state's budget.

    She vetoed it. It is the first gun rights law she has vetoed this session. She vetoed a similar bill last session, as well as one that would increase rights to have guns on school grounds (currently, only CCW holders - not the general "carry it because it's a right" crowd, but actual CCW holders - are allowed to have firearms on a k-12 school's property, but the firearm must be unloaded and remain in the vehicle. If the CCW holder leaves the vehicle, it must be locked up).

    Well, she signed a whole slew of other ones, including allowing the use of suppressors while hunting, and eliminating magazine capacity restrictions outside of those imposed by federal migratory bird laws (3 shots max in your shotgun for hunting migratory birds still).

    She had a pretty compelling argument for why she vetoed last year's bills about CCW - the only ones she vetoed weren't written very clearly, and she wanted to see some other things from the legislature before she'd sign something like that. Wonder what the explanation will be this time!

    In what sense is this bill 'Arizona leading the way?'

    It sounds more like 'Arizona slowly and haltingly trying to be more like Vermont' to me.

    Figures, as soon as I leave AZ they start with all the good stuff. I'm in a pretty good State but hopefully our laws will get even looser.

    Lemmy, see anyone else doing this? Maybe we're trying to be Vermont with less snooty architecture and a LOT more elbow room. ;)
    She also vetoed a nice resolution that WOULD have authorized organized resistance to United Nations troops attempting to violate the Constitution of the US or AZ. Darn it, maybe next election year cycle.
    We did add, as noted, laws to allow suppressors while hunting, something about half the US does allow. We're playing catch up there. We also removed the magazine limit for hunting, and removed the restriction of carrying an "unauthorized" weapon during hunting season as long as it isn't used to hunt with, i.e., carrying your KelTec SU16C folded over your back while bowhunting in case you "oopsie" into a marijuana farm or a bunch of smugglers crossing our supposedly safer than ever border.
    BTW, I am now interested in using my SA vz-58 for javalina, since there are NO 5 round mags for them in the US, and 90 days after the legislature adjourns Sin Die, these laws go into effect. Also be good for coyote, I'd think.
    We'll see about the Public Buildings thing again next year, but the redistricting might have an effect.
    Ryanxia, we went Constitutional Carry two years ago...c'mon back anytime.

    I'm not sure a governor should be evaluated by his/her single worst (or least popular) official action. I admire Jan Brewer and probably always will.
