Idaho Becomes 9th State to Allow Concealed Carry Without a Permit

Despite the best efforts of the gun grabbers, polls show that on average, Americans have been slowly drifting towards supporting more gun freedoms over the years. Consequently, most states have been gradually loosening their gun laws, with the exception of places like California, Illinois, and New England. By and large however, support for the Second Amendment has a lot of momentum, especially in regards to conceal carry laws.

Take Idaho for instance, where Governor Butch Otter just signed legislation that would allow citizens to conceal carry without a permit. “I’m a gun owner, a hunter and a lifetime member of the National Rifle Association.” He said in an open letter last week “I have consistently championed our citizens’ gun rights throughout my years in public office, and I do so again today in signing Senate Bill 1389 into law.” The law argues that Idaho’s open carry laws are flawed, since citizens could still wind up breaking the law if their clothes accidentally cover their sidearms.

Residents of Idaho will still be able to receive a concealed carry permit, which will allow them to carry in other states. The law goes into effect on July 1st, and will grant conceal carry rights to anyone aged 21 and over who is legally allowed to own a firearm. Once it goes into effect, it will make Idaho the 9th state to allow conceal carry without a permit.

  • Gun prohibition works as well as drug prohibition.

    • That’s because they’re one and the same. The state’s infringement on the right to property.

      • That is evident once you understand that Jefferson’s right to the pursuit of happiness started out as property.

  • Good for Idaho!

    Be careful, I believe Idaho’s law says that Idaho RESIDENTS can carry concealed without a permit. Anyone else know about this?

    I unfortunately live in California – ranked worse only by DC in terms of issuing CCWs. However, it isn’t ALL of CA that is that bad in terms of CCW permits. The overwhelming majority of Counties give CCW permits – its just the Coastal / High Population Counties that don’t want to issue. I have a cousin that lives in Ventura County, who got his CCW with very little effort, and in CA a CCW permit IS good in all Counties anywhere in the State.
    My own opinion is that what Arizona has done with Constitutional Carry is the only way to go in which California will fight, until its the last State, to deny.
    At least the weather and the jobs are good here.

    • A permit is something you have to get to do what would otherwise be illegal.
      A permit sounds like an infringement on a right, to me. But then, I live in the county with the highest per capita ownership in the nation, 14.

    Let Mike Bloomberg offer everyone in Idaho $5,000 to give up their guns. Then take the money and tell him to f##k off. However, his way would to spend much less, and just buy up state legislators—if they’re corrupt.

    • Only if it applies to his bodyguards as well.

      Legislators and corruption are mutually-dependent…!

  • Until everyone who can carry concealed can carry everywhere, it is academic, it is still an infringement on what the founders routinely exercised.

    They have automobile museums, but they do not have motor vehicle museums. Why are they called motor vehicles? So, they can control them. They [ the POS attorneys most of whom will all burn in HELL] did the same thing to every one of the states. Where did the name marijuana come from? Nobody is being charged for possession of cannabis.

    This is how you take that claim back, you overrule that claim, and you disintegrate that claim. Because they are all legal fictions—you are not.

    Own nothing and control everything is the way of the corporations. If you operate as a corporation, this is proper. If you are a man or woman, it is not proper.

    The custodian, the owner, is the occupant of that office and that is a breathing being, a man or woman, and you are the only one that can possess anything, all these fictions cannot. They have only served you with notices; they are not making any claims! Claims have to be proved.

    They make a notice and they put an account number on it, or a docket number, or whatever, but they are not claims. Because they are working in discount, fiat currency, it has no value! They are all bankrupt. Bankrupt cannot claim anything. The trustee and creditors can make claims. Not the debtors. They are the debtors. Everything is a notice in the world.

    You made a mistake by stating that New England did not allow concealed carry without a permit; it was said as if New England is a state. Please understand That Both Vermont and Maine allow concealed carry without a permit. Please do not generalize in that way.

    Allow ? Allow ? The Constitution & the Bill of Rights are the law of the land. No questions, No exceptions !
