Legislator Claims Harassment by Constitutional Carry Supporters
BOISE, Idaho (AP) — The chairman of the House State Affairs Committee says his family and the families of other committee members are being harassed by backers of a proposed law to allow Idaho residents to carry concealed weapons without a permit.
Republican Tom Loertscher of Iona on Tuesday on the House floor said his and the home phone numbers of other committee members are being published. But Loertscher says the lawmakers are at the Statehouse so family members are getting the calls in what he says is a "new low," and he is asking the callers to "cease and desist."
Backers of the proposed law dubbed "Constitutional Carry" are telling individuals to call the lawmakers to urge a hearing be held on the bill.
