A group called the “Coalition to Keep Guns Off Campus” delivered a thick stack of petitions against SB 1254, the guns-on-campus bill, to House Speaker Scott Bedke this morning. “We have nearly 3,000 Idahoans who have signed this,” said spokeswoman Emily Walton. The petitions call on lawmakers to reject SB 1254, the Senate-passed bill that was the subject of a seven-hour hearing Friday before a House committee forwarded it to the full House, where it’s now pending. The bill could come up for a vote in the full House as soon as tomorrow.
