Legislature takes aim at gun-free zones

At long last, our leaders are pushing to end discrimination in Arizona’s places of business. To protect the civil rights of that most picked-upon group of citizens.

Borrelli’s bill affords special protections to business owners who allow guns on the premises, shielding them from liability should someone get shot. A gunshot victim (or his or her next of kin) would have to prove that the business owner “intends to cause injury or acts with gross negligence” in order to hold them in any way responsible. In other words, gun-friendly businesses would be exempt from civil liability.
