Boise State Rescinds Fines For Gun Rights Events
Boise State University officials say they will rescind the security fines they placed on a student group for bringing a guns right advocate earlier this year to speak at the campus.
However, university attorney Kevin Satterlee says BSU will not change its event policies as requested by the Idaho Freedom Foundation and American Civil Liberties Union of Idaho.
Satterlee says the university charged Young Americans for Liberty $465 for the May event after seeing a community member encourage attendees to bring weapons on campus. Not providing extra security, Satterlee says, would be considered negligence.
The ACLU and Freedom Foundation has described the university's event policies unconstitutional and threatened to sue unless they were amended.
