Education Board Rejects Gun Bill


guns_on_campus

(BOISE, ID) – The Idaho Board of Education is opposing a bill that would allow people to carry guns on the campuses of public universities. The GOP-backed measure would enable people with the enhanced concealed carry permit, which requires a training course, to bring their guns to campus. State Superintendent Tom Luna opposed the bill out of concerns that allowing civilians to carry guns might confuse law enforcement responding to a school shooting. Luna does, however, expect that similar measures will appear in the legislature over the coming years.
