The shooting rampage in Tucson that wounded U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords is not slowing down Arizona legislators who want more rights for gun owners.

Arizona has become a champion in the gun rights movement, with state lawmakers passing bill after bill to protect the people's right to bear arms nearly anywhere, at anytime.

The Legislature's session began two days after the January 8 shooting, and gun rights legislation has already been proposed. One bill would allowing college and university faculty members to carry concealed weapons on campus.

Giffords is a former state legislator. The Democrat was critically wounded when she was shot in the head. She was upgraded to serious condition over the weekend.
