Contact your state Senator TODAY in support of Senate Bill 1254
Today, Senate Bill 1254 passed in the Idaho Senate State Affairs Committee by a 7-2 vote and will now go to the Senate floor for further consideration. SB 1254, introduced by state Senator Curt McKenzie (R-13), would permit qualified retired law enforcement officers and law-abiding adults who have obtained an Idaho “enhanced” concealed carry license to possess a firearm on public college or university campuses. However, this legislation would provide universities discretion to prohibit qualifying individuals from carrying within a student dormitory or residence hall and a public entertainment or sporting facility with a seating capacity of more than 1,000 persons. The specific provisions of SB 1254 ensure that responsible, law-abiding individuals with enhanced training are able to carry a firearm for self-defense while on a public college or university campus.
SB 1254 is an important step toward protecting students and faculty on campus, and the NRA thanks the members of the Senate State Affairs Committee who voted for this bill.
