    Does anyone know if Idaho community colleges actually have any authority currently to ban gun carry?

    BOISE - A North Idaho College spokesman on Monday took issue with state legislation that would create new exemptions for carrying firearms on Idaho's college campuses.

    NIC's Mark Browning noted that the Lake City community college already has its own "no carry" policy banning firearms - concealed or open carry - on the NIC campus.

    If the bill introduced at the Idaho Legislature on Monday becomes law, it would infringe upon NIC's gun policy by weakening local control for the school's trustees, Browning said.

    "By carving out those exemptions, what it does is erodes our local board's authority to make decisions that impact its own campus," Browning said in an interview.

    Probably not, but they'll expel a student caught with a firearm.
