NRA aims to lobby for guns on campus again

POCATELLO, Idaho (AP) - A National Rifle Association lobbyist says the guns-right lobby will attempt to persuade Idaho lawmakers next year to allow people to carry concealed weapons on college campuses without a permit.

The Idaho State Journal reports that Matt Dogali of the NRA at a meeting at Idaho State University last week said people should be allowed to carry a concealed weapon without a permit and to bring that weapon onto campuses.

Earlier this year lawmakers decided to leave it to university leaders to decide how to regulate firearms.

The House passed a measure that would have prohibited schools from banning firearms anywhere on campus except in undergraduate residence halls, but state senators killed the bill, arguing "there are times and places where guns are not appropriate on campus."
