Campus Carry Threatens N-Research

Idaho State University could lose its license to conduct nuclear research from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission if a bill to allow concealed weapons on college campuses becomes law, Gov. Butch Otter said Friday, according to the AP and the Idaho State Journal. Otter, in a meeting with about 30 ISU College Republicans, said ISU President Arthur Vailas told him Thursday that the commission has a zero-tolerance policy regarding weapons at licensed nuclear research facilities, putting the school's nuclear research efforts at risk if the bill becomes law. “I had never heard that before,” Otter said/Betsy Russell, Eye on Boise.
