The question of whether you’ll be able to carry a gun into a bar — or have to confront someone else who is packing — is now in the hands of Gov. Janet Napolitano.

On a 17-12 margin, the Senate on Monday gave final approval to permit people to carry weapons into places where alcohol is served. That includes not just bars but also restaurants and other places with liquor licenses such as stadiums and arenas.

The House voted 36-22 in favor of the measure.

Lawmakers agreed to add a provision that says anyone who is carrying a weapon, openly or concealed, cannot drink. But that may not be enough to convince the governor to sign it.

Napolitano has not signaled her intentions, but has noted the measure is opposed by business owners and by police departments statewide.
