Idaho: Permitless Carry Legislation Introduced

Today, Senate Bill 1378, important self-defense legislation, was introduced in the Idaho Senate. Sponsored by state Senator Curt McKenzie, SB 1378 would allow a law-abiding individual, who is a resident of Idaho and 21 years of age or older, to lawfully carry a concealed handgun for self-defense without needing to first obtain a government-issued permit.  SB 1378 is being referred to the Senate State Affairs Committee for consideration.  Please contact the members of the Senate State Affairs Committee and respectfully urge them to support SB 1378.  Please click the “Take Action” button below to contact the members of the Committee!

Under the provisions of SB 1378, an individual who is over the age of 21, a resident of Idaho, and who is not otherwise disqualified from obtaining a concealed weapons license (CWL), may lawfully exercise their fundamental right to self-defense by carrying a concealed handgun without having to first undergo a government-mandated permitting process.  SB 1378 will not allow individuals who are prohibited from possessing a firearm, under state or federal law, to lawfully carry a concealed handgun. 

Under the provisions of SB 1378, Idaho's existing permitting process is left fully intact.  Non-residents may still obtain an Idaho CWL and Idaho law still allows any non-resident to lawfully carry a concealed weapon in the state if they possess a valid CWL from another state.  This legislation recognizes that self-defense situations are difficult, if not impossible, to anticipate.  As a result, law-abiding Idahoans will be able to lawfully possess a concealed weapon in the manner and under the circumstances that best suits their needs.
