Say No to Republicans Favoring Guns on Campus

Dear SedonaEye.com Editors,

The formation of the new Legislative District 6 (LD6) gives voters the chance to elect one new senator and two new legislators not tied to the ideological rigidity of the Republican Party.

This new district which is the size of Vermont consists of approximately 9,500 sq. miles and covers parts of four Arizona counties: Yavapai, Coconino, Navajo and Gila. With the diversity of such a large district, I hope voters of LD6 consider carefully the antics of the Republican majority, particularly regarding gun legislation.

I own a gun. I have a constitutional right to own a gun. However, I do not believe guns should be allowed on college campuses or in state government buildings. That is what Republicans tried to pass this past session and will continue to try to pass unless voters change the majority party in the state legislature.

Isn’t it bad enough that in 2009 they made it legal to allow firearms in bars under certain conditions and no longer require a state permit to carry a concealed weapon?

No wonder the tragedy of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords happened—only in Arizona, thanks to Republicans who seem to swallow whatever the National Rifle Association wants.

With the new district of LD6, those of us who believe in gun rights can vote for candidates who also have common sense. My votes are going to Democrats Angela LeFevre and Doug Ballard for the legislature and Tom Chabin for the senate.
