The district’s governing board is scheduled to vote tonight on a firearms policy to comply with a new state law that protects officers’ right to bear arms on public property.
The policy details when the officers can use their weapons and how to respond if someone is seriously hurt, or killed, when they do use their guns.
MCCCD is the only major higher education institution in Arizona that doesn’t allow its officers to carry guns.
A small, tiny step in the right direction, but a step nonetheless. Arizona has good carry laws; I would support a push to allow college students with valid CCW permits to carry on campus.
