Student Leaders Call For Otter Veto

Student leaders from across Idaho released statements this afternoon in opposition to the weapons on campus bill. Student leaders will be asking Governor Otter for a veto of the weapons on campus bill with thousands of petitions and letters from students. Benaiah Cheevers, President of Associated Students of North Idaho College stated: “North Idaho College has made it clear from students all the way through to the board of trustees that we are opposed to the approval of SB1254. The people of North Idaho are probably the most avid in Idaho for gun rights, but the implementation of SB1254 isn’t an appropriate way to facilitate gun rights as I believe allowing firearms on campuses would infringe the safety and security of people of all ages who occupy campuses. I believe logic is our best friend, and I believe firearms should be prohibited from all higher education campuses in the state for best safety and security practices”/News Release. More here.

Question: Do you really think Butch would veto legislation supported by a supermajority of legislative Republicans and the NRA, in an election year? Are. You. Kidding. Me?
