The University of Idaho has announced their new policy on concealed carry (FAQ here). This was forced upon them by the legislature (and Mike contributed a great deal to this) and the administration is obviously still hostile to people exercising their specific enumerated right to keep and bear arms. Some school authorities have come right out and said, “The Second Amendment does not apply to schools.”
If someone sees a person with a gun:
…the safest course of action is to call the Police Department by dialing 911. They will respond and make contact with an individual to determine if that person is an authorized permit holder and is carrying a weapon legitimately.
This is the recommended procedure even if all appearances are the individual is legally carrying.
But the issue that bugs me the most is:
Q 14. Are authorized permit holders allowed to possess or store their weapons in married student housing?
A – No. Any building located on or within the campus area owned by the University to house persons residing on campus as students is considered a “student dormitory or residence hall” under the law, and possession or storage of weapons in married student housing is prohibited.
How is this not in direct violation of the Heller decision?
At least daughter Kim, once she gets her enhanced CWL, will be able to carry when she is on campus. That’s a big improvement.
Thank you Mike.
