Senate OKs Guns On Campus 25-10

The Senate has voted 25-10 in favor of SB 1254, the bill to allow guns on Idaho public college campuses. The measure now moves to the House side; to become law, it needs passage there and the governor’s signature.  All seven Senate Democrats by just three Republicans in opposing the bill, Sens. Goedde, Johnson and Keough. During the roll call, Goedde asked for 60 seconds to explain his vote. “I’m really conflicted with this,” he said. “I am in favor of local control, but I also respect the 2nd Amendment.” More here.

Question: An incredibly reckless vote. Thoughts?
