Boise Cops Oppose Guns On Campus

Boise Police Department Lt. Tony Plott, pictured, told the House State Affairs Committee the department opposes HB 222, the campus guns bill. He said he's a lifetime NRA member, the father of three college-age daughters, and a second-generation law enforcement officer. “Conduct that most adults feel is risky, young adults feel is pretty fun,” he told the committee. “As a campus police agency, we feel strongly that adding weapons to this mix will mean our college students are less safe”/Betsy Russell, Eye On Boise.

Question: Will college students in Idaho be more/less safe, if guns are allowed on campus?
