BSU student body opposes looser gun rules

The student government at Boise State voted on the Idaho Senate bill that would allow concealed weapons on campus.

In a resolution against SB 1254, student government leaders said students prefer dealing with university administrators on campus weapons policies and praised the school for providing a safe, student environment.

The bill, by Sen. Curt McKenzie, R-Nampa, would allow retired law enforcement and people with enhanced concealed-weapons permits to carry guns on college campuses. The State Board of Eduction has unanimously opposed the bill, saying it raises questions of student safety.
