Student leaders from Idaho colleges and universities delivered a six-inch-high stack of petitions and letters to Gov. Butch Otter this morning opposing SB 1254, the guns-on-campus bill that passed the House yesterday, and urging Otter to veto the bill. Bryan Vlok, BSU student body president, said the student leaders have requested a meeting with Otter before he acts on the bill. “We haven’t heard back yet,” he said.

Today’s delivery to the governor’s office included 752 letters from students, petitions with 2,976 signatures, and letters from 126 Idaho faculty members, all opposing the bill.
