PHOENIX (AP) - Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer has vetoed two major pro-gun bills that would have allowed concealed-carry permit holders to take their guns into government buildings and would have punished cities and towns that enact gun ordinances stricter than the state's own laws.

Brewer vetoed Republican House bills 2339 and 2517 on Tuesday.

House Bill 2339 would allow gun owners 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 by Rep. Brenda Barton of Payson excludes public K-12 schools, community colleges and universities.

House Bill 2517 by Rep. Steve Smith of Maricopa would impose fines on cities, towns and their lawmakers who enforce gun ordinances more strictly than the state's own laws.
