Brewer signs 1 of 4 pro-gun bills passed Wednesday

PHOENIX -- Republican Gov. Jan Brewer wasted no time signing into law one of a series of gun bills approved by the Arizona Senate on Wednesday.

Brewer signed House Bill 2483 Wednesday evening, shortly after it was transmitted to her office. Two other bills remain unsigned and a third has not yet reached her desk.

The bill bans cities, counties and towns from restricting the shooting of guns on private property. The bill was sponsored by Republican Rep. John Kavanagh of Fountain Hills. It passed the Senate on a 16-13 vote Wednesday and had earlier passed the House.

Kavanagh says the bill was prompted by Yavapai County's effort to restrict shooting on a property owned by a rural Prescott man. It was opposed by Republican Rep. Karen Fann of Prescott, who says the state should not be stepping in to a local zoning issue.
