Gov. Doug Ducey is working up Arizona's own plan to keep schools safe from gun violence.
"We think we can have the most comprehensive law in the country," Ducey said Monday on KTAR's "Mac & Gaydos."
Earlier Monday, I asked Ducey whether he supports what President Donald Trump has recommended, ideas that reflect he NRA's wishes.
Here's a rundown:
Arming teachers: Trump says teachers should carry weapons. He wants the U.S. Department of Justice to provide cash so states can train them.
Ducey's not a fan of arming teachers, but he'd listen if a teacher with military or law-enforcement experience wanted to be armed.
He appears inclined to assign police to more schools as school resource officers. State or federal money would be needed to pay for that.
Age requirements: The president backed off his initial call to raise the age requirement for purchasing an assault weapon, from 18 to 21. He'll let the states decide what to do.
Ducey's not interested. He made it clear he's not working on a "gun safety" bill.
"That's not what we're looking at," he told me. "We're looking at school-safety measures."
The NRA sued the State of Florida last week after its Legislature raised the age limit for buying long guns, from 18 to 21.
Taking guns away: This is another area where Trump backed down. He had talked about confiscating weapons from people perceived as a danger to the community, without going to court. The president will let the states figure that one out, too.
Ducey is keenly aware of the constitutional problems in Trump's original idea.
"I'd like to remove all the guns away from the people that should not have the guns," he said.
Ducey said his staff was working with law-enforcement, educators and mental-health professionals to come with a plan to keep weapons out of the hands of people who might threaten schools.
Background checks: Trump wants to improve the background check systems, but not make checks universal.
Ducey wants the state to do a better job reporting convictions to the federal background check database.
The Republican governor, who is running for re-election in the fall, said he expected to have a plan before the end of the legislative session.
"I have a framework on my desk. We're putting it in front of other elected leaders," he told "Mac & Gaydos."
