Could Guns-On-Campus Law Expand?

Idaho’s new guns-on-campus law just went into effect on July 1, but could changes already be on the way? College of Western Idaho President Bert Glandon floated the possibility last week, as his two-year institution adopted a rewrite of its firearms policy. Now, concealed weapons permit holders over the age of 21 will be allowed to carry guns on the CWI campus, in accordance with the controversial campus carry bill passed by the 2014 Legislature. At a board of trustees meeting Tuesday, Glandon said he is already hearing rumblings about possible changes — perhaps dropping the concealed carry permit age to 18, allowing open carry on college campuses and considering weapons in K-12 and looking at weapons policies for K-12 schools.

Question: Do you believe pro-gun legislators in Idaho will try to expand the guns-on-campus law in the 2015 Legislature, possibly to drop the concealed-carry permit age to 18 or to allow open carry on campus?
