Seven of 77 guns found by TSA agents over the past two weeks.

Don't you just love those "fiscal conservatives?"

Boise State University says proposed legislation that would allow guns to be legally carried on its campus would cost the school more than $3.5 million in the first three years of the law’s implementation.

BSU’s head of security and police services, Jon Uda, detailed the costs in a university memo. In it, he says having guns on campus would present “myriad” of new threats for campus security.

Under current policy, Uda writes that unarmed security officers have traditionally responded to suspicious and threatening situations “knowing that individuals on campus were probably not armed due to University policy restrictions."

This diary is yet another follow up to Education Leaders Say Idaho Gun Bill Has a Bad Shot at Improving Safety, which was followed up yesterday by GOP guns on campus bill could kill nuclear research at Idaho State University.

As was mentioned:

GOP politicians didn’t care that university campuses are some of the safest places to be in Idaho–without arming a paranoid minority itching to flash their peacemakers.
Republican legislatures with seriously bad ideas and crass, materialist election-year chest-thumping provide a lot to write about.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
