The limited reform of Idaho's restrictions on bearing arms (SB 1254) was signed by Governor Butch Otter today, 12 March 2014. The law removes the university imposed restrictions from retired peace officers and people who have received Idaho's enhanced concealed carry license. Those two groups will now be able to carry concealed weapons on the public property of college and university campuses. From KTVB.com:
The legislation allows a limited group of people to carry concealed weapons on college and university campuses. Supporters say the bill protects people's Second Amendment rights.
5-343. IMMUNITY OF COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES ALLOWING FIREARMS.
No action shall lie or be maintained for civil damages in any court of this
state against the board of regents of the university of Idaho, the boards
of trustees of the state colleges and universities, a dormitory housing
commission, the board of professional-technical education or the boards of
trustees of each of the community colleges established under chapter 21,
title 33, Idaho Code, where the claim arises out of the policy of the board or
commission to either specifically allow or not prohibit the lawful posses-
sion and storage of firearms on its property.
Otters can be vicious.

Butch Otter. You can’t even make that up.
Good. Maybe that will sway the lawmakers in Alaska to approve the carry at UAF and UAA.
One would hope. Governor Otter stood up to the old media and the Universities, with their lies and pressure.
I hope the AK legislature will also do so.

What is “enhanced concealed carry” compared to non-enhanced?
The regular license requires three hours of training, all in a classroom with a firearms instructor.
The enhanced license is eight hours, with half in a classroom with either an attorney or law enforcement officer, the other half hands on shooting at the range.
Also, there’s a difference in the age requirement, 21 years old for the enhanced and 18 years old for the regular.
