Next month is the seventh anniversary of the mass shooting on the Virginia Tech campus, in which 32 people were killed and 30 others were injured.

Many states have reacted by enacting stricter gun control laws, but other states are making it easier to carry guns on campus.

Idaho recently became the seventh state to allow concealed weapons on campus at public colleges, in spite of opposition from college presidents in Idaho, including Anthony Fernandez at Lewis-Clark State College in Lewiston, Idaho.
