PHOENIX – Arizona Governor Jan Brewer has vetoed two controversial bills passed by both the Arizona Senate and House — the guns on campus bill and the ‘birther’ bill.

Guns on Campus Bill: SB 1467

– Would’ve allowed guns to be carried on public rights of way at public university and community college campuses

– Applies only to rights of way — not inside classrooms

– University presidents opposed the bill

“This bill was very sloppily written and drafted, and I believe when it affects not only our education system, all the way from K-12 all the way through the university, and we can’t even find out a definition, what is a right of way? It just wasn’t defined to be able to tell the courts or the policeman how they are going to enforce a law like that,” Governor Brewer told us.
