Idaho Senate Bill Would Allow Conceal Carry Outside Cities
BOISE, Idaho (AP) — The Senate State Affairs Committee has introduced a bill that would allow people to carry concealed weapons outside city limits in Idaho without a permit.
Republican Sen. Marv Hagedorn from Meridian told the panel Friday that his bill would also remove a rule that lets state legislators carry concealed guns without a permit. Currently, Idahoans are allowed to hunt or fish without a concealed weapons permit. Some lawmakers asked whether the bill would limit property owners' rights to restrict guns on their property.
Hagedorn told them it wouldn't. The bill comes one week after the House State Affairs Committee introduced a similar plan with a broader scope. That proposal would allow any law abiding citizen to carry a concealed weapon but no hearing has been scheduled.
