Idaho looks to be moving towards concealed carry on campuses

While people aren't going to be able to carry permitted concealed handguns in living areas or at sporting events, this will still get rid of a number of gun-free zones on campuses.
On Tuesday, February 18, the Idaho Senate voted to reform current law to allow those with concealed carry permits to carry their defensive firearms on public campuses.   The bill is SB 1254, and has some interesting exceptions: 
"the exception of carrying within student dormitories and residence halls, and within public entertainment facilities, as defined."
I suppose that this is the sort of compromise that was required to obtain the strong legislative majorities that the bill has attracted.  It passed the Senate by a 25-10 majority, and is expected to pass the house, where a similar reform measure was passed in 2011. . . .
