Sponsor says fate of campus guns bill uncertain

PHOENIX - The sponsor of Arizona legislation to allow guns on college and university campuses says he doesn't know what its fate will be.

Sen. Ron Gould says it's ``approaching the 11th hour,'' for the bill to emerge from the Senate, where it has been stalled, but work is still being done to encourage lawmakers to support it.

The Republican from Lake Havasu City wants to allow gun owners with concealed-carry permits to bring their firearms on campus. Colleges and universities could only ban guns if they provide secure storage lockers.

Gould commented Wednesday as he said he opposes another lawmaker's proposal to allow university and college faculty to carry guns on campus.

Gould says he wants a broader change than just giving faculty the right to carry.
