Chief Rips Guns On Campus Hearing

Boise Police Chief Mike Masterson, who waited through the nearly three-hour hearing on the guns-on-campus bill expecting to testify, has released a strongly worded statement objecting to how the hearing was handled. Masterson said he arrived early to sign up to testify, but committee Chairman Curt McKenzie, R-Nampa, gave over nearly 40 minutes the hearing to NRA lobbyist Dakota Moore. Police chiefs and law enforcement leaders traveled from as far away as Moscow to testify against the bill, Masterson said, but, “None of the police leaders were called”/Betsy Russell, Eye on Boise.

Question: Someone mentioned in the comments section that legislative Republicans are ramrodding this issue like they did the Luna Laws a few years ago. Do you think that's a correct observation?
