State Board of Ed sets special meeting for Monday on guns-on-campus bill

Idaho’s State Board of Education has called a special meeting for Monday at 10:30 a.m. in regard to SB 1254, the guns-on-campus bill. The measure would pre-empt public colleges and universities in Idaho from regulating guns on campus, instead imposing a state law saying retired police officers and those with enhanced concealed weapons permits can carry concealed guns on college campuses, as long as they stay out of dormitories or stadiums with seating for more than 1,000. The elected boards of both North Idaho College and the College of Southern Idaho have voted to oppose the bill, and officials at other institutions also have expressed concern.
