Changing gun laws raise new questions on UI campus

MOSCOW, Idaho (AP) - A task force at the University of Idaho is trying to determine just what a new law allowing concealed weapons on campus means for the school.

The Lewiston Tribune reports UI President Chuck Staben established the 14-member task force last month. That's when Gov. C.L. "Butch" Otter signed into law a controversial measure allowing retired law enforcement officers and people with concealed-carry permits to bring firearms onto public college and university campuses.

Matt Dorschel with UI Public Safety and Security says task force members are still gathering information and they're getting a lot of questions. Some of the questions include whether a faculty member can ask classes to identify who is carrying a concealed weapon, and what will happen in areas like the university child care center.
