Idaho State University Cancels Order for 11 AR-15 Rifles
POCATELLO, Idaho (KTVB) -- Idaho State University has canceled an order for 11 AR-15 rifles.
Associate Vice President for ISU Facilities Phil Moessner says the school canceled the order in December.
Moessner says the school ordered the weapons in August to have them on hand should an active shooter appear on campus.
But Moessner says officials on second consideration decided it would be better if local law enforcement officials rather than campus security dealt with an active shooter should that situation arise.
Moessner tells the Idaho State Journal that the school might still have to pay for some of the cost of the guns.
He didn't provide an estimate.
