Idaho House votes on campus gun bill

BOISE, Idaho (AP) - The Idaho House has voted to back a bill allowing students, faculty and visitors carry guns on college campuses.

The bill passed with a 50-19 vote, with proponents arguing it upholds Second Amendment rights and allows people on campuses to protect themselves.

But lawmakers who voted against it skewered the measure, saying it's being pushed through despite opposition from leaders of all eight public colleges and universities.

Those leaders worry it will disrupt learning environments and put people at risk.

A rally on the Capitol steps last week drew hundreds of demonstrators, a majority of whom said they didn't want to see the bill become law.

The Senate approved the bill 25-10 last month.

There's one more hurdle left: The bill now heads to Gov. C.L. "Butch" Otter's desk.


What with drastic reductions in Idaho's mental health care, it is truly sad that more-caring minds didn't prevail.  Caring minds like . . .
