Senate OKs guns in most public buildings

When the Tucson shooting happened most people seem to never hear about the people who stopped the sick idiot from shoot even more people. Can you guess who that was? Other Gun Owners ran to the scene and took the guy down. If it wasn't for those Gun Owners running to the scene more people would have easily been shot and killed.

My hats off to those who did make it there when they could. In my eyes these are the Heroes that stopped something that could have been much worse.
For the article below here.

I can totally understand why this would be OK'd. In the case another Mad Man decided to pull this off again. It would be wise to have Those who respect the Gun Laws and Rights we have here in America to be at your side in any case or situation. The Right to Bear Arms is not about look I have a gun lets shoots something or somebody. It's about the Right to protect ourselves, our Families and our Freedom.

For people who claim to be the good Samaritan. Let me ask you this. If you were standing there at that Safeway store when this psychopath came in shooting up the place. What would you have done to stop him without any protection? Just a thought.

I thank God for those who were carrying at that time to run in and help. No matter what the rest of this wierded out country tries to blame Arizona for. For the short time I've been in this state. I have to say. This State Rocks.

Check out the article below at the link to read the full story.

PHOENIX - With both sides invoking the memory of the Jan. 8 mass shooting in Tucson, the Senate voted 21-8 Thursday to expand where people can carry guns.
SB 1201 would permit weapons in most public buildings. It would allow gun owners to ignore the "no weapons" signs now posted on most buildings unless visitors also have to go through metal detectors or be screened by security personnel with hand-held wands.
It would not, however, disturb existing laws about guns on college campuses. But separate legislation proposes to overturn that ban.
Senate President Russell Pearce, R-Mesa, said the measure simply recognizes that people have a right to defend themselves.
But the move, less than two months after the incident in Tucson, provoked an angry and sometimes tearful reaction from foes, all Democrats.
