Bender quoted in ‘Tribune’ about gun legislation
, Professor of Law and Dean Emeritus, was quoted in an April 25
East Valley Tribune
article, “Legislation pushes gun control issues back into spotlight,” by reporter Andrew Hedlund.
The article explored recent state legislation regarding gun control, including a bill that would have allowed guns on public right-of-ways on school campuses. Gov. Jan Brewer vetoed the measure, calling it “poorly written.” In the article, Bender discussed the Second Amendment and gun regulation laws.
