Arizona's house of Representatives has approved a bill allowing guns on campuses, making it the second US state to allow firearms at universities.

The Republican-led House voted 33 to 24 to allow guns to be carried openly or concealed, in campus public rights of way. Supporters say that the bill – which will now be sent to the state governor – will help students to defend themselves. But college administrators and law enforcement officials opposed the bill.
