Permitless Concealed Carry In Idaho Passes, Takes Effect July 1st 2016

Via John


On Friday afternoon, Idaho Governor Butch Otter signed into law a bill that will allow Idaho residents 21 years of age and older, to carry concealed firearms without the need for a permit.

Recently passed in the Senate and House, SB-1389 will still have residents ages 18-20 to complete training and have a permit.

In Idaho, it is currently legal to openly carry a firearm without a permit.

Once the law goes into effect on July 1st 2016, Idaho will join the other states that have permitless concealed carry; Alaska, Arizona, Kansas, Maine, Vermont, Wyoming and West Virginia. Many other states are also working on similar legislation, and the list is likely to grow.

Governor Butch Otter released the following statement regarding the bill:


  1. Interesting, while making a comment on this thread, my computer mysteriously shut down. I'll try it again.

    Considering what a tool of the PTB that ol' butchie is, I am a little surprised that he signed the bill with not too much objection, except that he "wished" that there had been a provision to require that the firearms owner receive "training" before carrying concealed.

    What ol' butchie and his ilk do not understand is that most anyone that will be carrying concealed is a responsible individual and take it upon themselves to receive training, and not training dictated by the state.

    It will be a wonderful day when we will run ol' butchie and his ilk out of office.

      I am not familiar with him, but will agree with your knowledge. :)
