The Idaho State Board of Education voted 6-0 Monday to oppose a bill that would allow concealed weapons on college campuses.
We have to protect our students, said Milford Terrell, a board member from Boise. I feel very strongly about having guns on campus.
Board member Bill Goesling of Moscow also expressed concern for the safety of public school students who could be attending events on Idaho college campuses.
A bill sponsored by Sen. Curt McKenzie, R-Boise, Senate State Affairs Committee chairman, would allow concealed weapon on campus except in dormitories and residence halls. and in entertainment venues with a seating capacity of at least 1,000 people.
