Few Attend UI Guns On Campus Event

Unease about repercussions for concealed weapons sightings was the main concern for attendees of a "guns on campus" forum Wednesday at the University of Idaho. The forum was part of UI's Campus Safety Week and was held to discuss the policy developed by the university in response to the so-called guns on campus law passed by the Idaho Legislature earlier this year. Kent Nelson, university general counsel, and Matt Dorschel, university executive director for public safety and security, led the discussion, which was lightly attended by only a few students and faculty members. "What's most important to realize is that our policy for how we react to weapons sightings has not changed," Nelson said. "If it's a properly concealed weapon, you shouldn't see it at all"/Kaitlyn Krasselt, Lewiston Tribune. More here.

Question: Why do you think a forum to discuss the controversial new guns-on-campus policy at UIdaho attracted so few?
