   PHOENIX (AP) - To the surprise of the bill’s sponsor, Gov. Jan Brewer vetoed a bill Tuesday that that would have allowed concealed-carry permit holders to take their guns into government buildings.

Rep. Brenda Barton, R-Payson, said she was disappointed and surprised because she believes she addressed many of the issues that the governor had with a similar bill during a prior legislative session. But Brewer stated in her veto letter that the new bill still did not meet concerns she had with similar legislation in the 2011 and 2012 sessions.

House Bill 2339 would have allowed people with concealed-carry permits to bring weapons into government buildings unless security measures - including armed guards, metal detectors and gun lockers - are in place. The measure excluded public K-12 schools, community colleges and universities.

“I am a strong proponent of the Second Amendment, and I have signed into law numerous pieces of legislation to advance and protect gun rights. However, I cannot support this measure in its proposed form,” Brewer wrote.

I honestly do not think it's a good idea to allow weapons into government buildings, particularly not concealed weapons.  taking weapons into the dmv might seem innocuous enough, but all it would take is one disgruntled taxpayer walking into a local tax agency office for disaster to strike.  The number of government workers should be cut, not cut down.

Right, there will be blood in the streets (or DMV). Responsible, law abiding gun owners can't control themselves.

Well - the DMV is a little tempting.
