NIC Spokesman Wary Of Gun Law

Item: NIC wants to keep local control: State gun legislation would infringe upon school's existing policy/Dave Goins, Coeur d'Alene Press

More Info: A North Idaho College spokesman on Monday took issue with state legislation that would create new exemptions for carrying firearms on Idaho's college campuses. NIC's Mark Browning noted that the Lake City community college already has its own “no carry” policy banning firearms — concealed or open carry — on the NIC campus. If the bill introduced at the Idaho Legislature on Monday becomes law, it would infringe upon NIC's gun policy by weakening local control for the school's trustees, Browning said.

Meeting Tonight: NIC's five-member board of trustees will meet later today in Coeur d'Alene to formalize their official position on the issue. The trustees will hold a special meeting at 5:45 p.m. in the Edminster Student Union Building Driftway Bay Room on the NIC campus.
