Senate Minority Leader Michelle Stennett, D-Ketchum, did an interview for NBC's "Today" show about a bill that will allow anyone with an enhanced concealed weapons permit to carry guns on college campuses in Idaho. The interview was taped Thursday in Senate chambers at the State Capitol, Stennett said Monday.
But the interview did not air Monday morning. It may air Tuesday morning, according to Boise State University officials. The "Today" show starts at 7 a.m. MT on KTVB-Channel 7.
Proponents of SB 1254, say guns should be allowed on college campuses so that faculty, staff and others can protect themselves in the event that someone becomes violent.
The House voted 50-19 Thursday to allow adults 21 and older to carry concealed weapons on college campuses, with some exceptions. The Senate approved the bill earlier, and now it awaits the governor's signature.
The measure was strongly opposed by Idaho colleges and universities, and the State Board of Education. College students delivered petitions with thousands of signatures opposing the bill were delivered to the legislature last week.
