ID sheriff: more concealed gun permits would boost public safety

I'm beginning to think Idaho is a pretty neat place..

MOSCOW, Idaho (AP) - The sheriff of a north-central Idaho county where a shooting rampage left four dead and three wounded last May wants more people to obtain concealed weapons permits and carry guns, including on the University of Idaho campus, to improve public safety.

"In my opinion, if there were more students with (concealed weapons permits), the world would be safer," Latah County Sheriff Wayne Rausch told the Lewiston Tribune on Tuesday. "Just because we (law enforcement officers) are charged with protecting the public, doesn't mean the public shouldn't be able to protect itself."

That is a great quote!

I don't guess we have a single Sheriff or Chief in Georgia who has ever been quoted thusly or would testify like so in front of a General Assembly committee?

The state attorney general's office says the north-central Idaho city of Moscow doesn't have the legal authority to enforce a gun ban.

In a letter Tuesday, the office told city officials they can't restrict people from legally carrying exposed or concealed weapons on public property.

Moscow Mayor Nancy Chaney sought gun restrictions following a May 19 shooting rampage that left four dead and three wounded.

Chaney says she's personally disappointed by the letter, but not surprised.

In Idaho, it is legal to carry an exposed firearm in public, and a concealed weapon with the proper permit.

Chaney says allowing guns at public meetings could hinder an open debate.
