Over the weekend, two mass killings by men in Texas and Ohio have re-ignited discussions on gun violence and gun control across the nation. 

In Arizona, Speaker of the House Rusty Bowers, R-Mesa, has said that he is looking forward to discussing possible legislation to address the issue next session. 

Bowers also stated that Arizona has been “fortunate” to not have experienced a similar event as to what happened in Dayton and El Paso. 

Dennis Welch, the political editor for CBS5 News and 3TV, noted that Arizona was the site of the attempted assassination of then-U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords in 2011. Giffords survived, but six people died and more than a dozen were injured when the gunman opened fire at a constituent event in Tucson.
