He contended that Idaho’s colleges and universities misinterpret current law. “It’s currently legal for you to possess a firearm on a college or university campus – the most a college or university can do is ask you to leave and potentially prosecute you under the criminal trespass standard,” Moore said/Betsy Russell, Eye on Boise.
