Idaho Sheriffs Back Guns on College Campus Bill

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — The Idaho Sheriffs’ Association is throwing their support behind a bill that would allow people to carry concealed firearms on college campuses. A “vast majority” of 38 Idaho sheriffs who responded to a poll backed the legislation, according to Adams County Sheriff Ryan Zollman. Zollman said at a Wednesday press conference he thinks allowing guns on campus in the hands of law-abiding citizens will allow them to protect themselves. But multiple police chiefs and the heads of all eight public universities say they don’t want to see firearms being toted into classrooms and across the quad. More than 200 demonstrators rallied on the Capitol steps last week in opposition to the bill. It passed the Senate 25-10 in February, and is set for House floor debate Thursday.
