PHOENIX— A proposal to let people have guns while driving or walking through Arizona university and community college campuses has cleared its final legislative hurdle.

The Arizona House passed the bill on a 33-24 vote, sending the measure to Gov. Jan Brewer.

The Senate previously approved the measure, after watering it down to no longer allow guns inside campus buildings. But the bill still sparked sharp debate during Thursday's House vote.

State Rep. Bob Robson says guns on campuses are a bad idea, since students and others experience such emotional highs and lows due to grades, exams and other circumstances. Supporters say the bill would help people defend themselves from gun violence by someone who won't heed a campus's firearms ban.
