After an hour and a half, the House debate on SB 1254, the guns on campus bill, has wrapped up, and Reps. Judy Boyle, R-Midvale, and Christy Perry, R-Nampa, are giving their closing debate. "The authority surrounding the 2nd Amendment has always resided within the Idaho Legislature," Perry told the House. "Agency heads are not elected - they do not have the same accountability. ... Handing the authority to the multiple boards of trustees has not worked well for Idaho citizens. ... Send it back to the Legislature where it actually belongs." The vote is up next.
