More guns on campus?

Proposed legislation to arm school staff receives mixed reactions

Legislation that would allow school staff to carry concealed weapons without guidance from local school boards was recommended Thursday by the Idaho House State Affairs Committee and as of Monday is on its way to a third reading this week. As it is now written, this legislation would not have unanimous support from local education leaders. Post Falls Police Detective Sgt. Neil Uhrig, who serves as the chair of the Post Falls School Board, said his initial impression is that this bill is not ready.
