University of Idaho Gearing Up For Guns On Campus
MOSCOW, Idaho (KTVB) -- The University of Idaho is taking steps to comply with a new state law that allows people with an enhanced concealed-carry permit to bring a concealed weapon on campus.
The law takes effect on July 1.
New University of Idaho president Chuck Staben sent a letter to the school community Thursday. It announced the formation of a task force to recommend what policy changes the school should make to ensure campus safety while adhering to state law.
The Moscow-Pullman Daily News reports the university currently does not allow guns on campus and that policy will remain in effect until July 1.
