Guns, guns, guns… | March 6, 2014

If you are not already obsessed with the gun culture that is sweeping the nation, even in light of school shootings and rising homicide rates, consider this:  An Idaho legislative committee had been considering whether to support a bill which would give students, staff and visitors to carry guns on college campuses.  The bill came out of committee and is on its way to the statehouse for a vote.

The bill passed the Idaho Senate last month and moved through the House committee with a 11-3 party-line vote Friday, despite objections from students, multiple police chiefs and leaders of all eight of the state’s public colleges, the Associated Press reports.

If Idaho passes the bill, it will join six other states that allow concealed weapons on campuses, including Colorado, Kansas, Mississippi, Oregon, Utah, and Wisconsin.

Do guns protect us?  Or do they endanger us?
