Arizona Senate defeats bill allowing guns in public buildings

For the second year in a row, a bill that would have allowed some guns into public buildings was defeated in the state Senate.

There was no debate, and three Republicans voted with the 13 Senate Democrats to defeat the bill on a 16-14 vote.

The bill was sponsored by Sen. John Kavanagh, R-Fountain Hills, who tried to reprise a bill that failed last year. In Senate debate Monday, he argued "the little $1.98 sticker" that establishments post advising no firearms doesn't keep people safe.
