Guns On Campus Bill Advances


By KMVT News

Boise, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KSVT-TV ) A bill allowing students, faculty and visitors to carry guns on Idaho college campuses is headed to Governor Otter’s desk for approval.

This, after the House passed legislation fifty to nineteen Thursday.

Supporters argue it upholds second amendment rights, while those who oppose it say it's being pushed through despite opposition from leaders of all eight public colleges and universities.

Hundreds rallied on the Capitol steps last week in opposition of the bill, fearing that if it became law it would put people at risk.
