    Idaho: Permitless Carry Introduced in the Gem State

    Wednesday, February 23, 2011


    As of President’s Day, the Idaho Senate had introduced Senate Bill 1126 and assigned it to the State Affairs Committee. Commonly known as Permitless Carry legislation, this bill would amend the existing concealed carry law to allow law-abiding Idahoans to carry a concealed firearm without the burdensome requirement of acquiring an Idaho carry permit. The approval of this pivotal legislation would bode well for law-abiding citizens of Idaho who wish to protect not only themselves but family and friends alike.

    In Idaho today it is generally legal to carry a firearm openly as long as one is at least 18 years of age and not prohibited from possessing a firearm. However, if the firearm becomes covered with a coat, or if a woman prefers to carry a firearm in her purse, one needs to possess a concealed carry permit. The intent of this legislation is to give honest people the greatest possible freedom to choose the best method of carry for them, based on attire, gender, and/or physical attributes.

    Please contact the members of the Senate State Affairs Committee TODAY and respectfully urge them to support SB 1126!

    No Utah as far as I know, but Wyoming did pass our "constitutional carry" bill just last week. Effective July 1, any Wyoming resident legal able to own a gun can carry it concealed.
