Idaho Senate Advances Permitless Concealed Carry Bill
BOISE, Idaho (AP) — The Idaho Senate has approved legislation that would allow residents 21 years old and up carry hidden guns without permits or training.
Senate lawmakers voted 27-8 on Wednesday to advance the proposal over the House. Currently, Idaho allows permits people to carry a gun openly — in a holster, for instance — without a permit.
The measure would let people carry concealed, loaded guns in public without permits, such as by wearing a coat. People ages 18 through 20 would need a permit and training. If approved, Idaho would join a small handful of states that don't require concealed carry permits.
