Idaho: Permitless Carry Bill Passes the Senate

Today, March 16, Senate Bill 1389, NRA-endorsed permitless carry legislation, passed the Senate with a 27-8 vote.  SB 1389 was sent to the House of Representatives where it has been scheduled for a hearing in the House State Affairs Committee tomorrow, March 17, at 8:00am.  Please contact members of the House State Affairs Committee and politely urge them to SUPPORT SB 1389. 

As previously reported, SB 1389 would recognize a law-abiding adult’s unconditional Right to Keep and Bear Arms for self-defense in the manner he or she chooses.  SB 1389 recognizes that self-defense situations are difficult, if not impossible, to anticipate.  Accordingly, a law-abiding adult’s right to defend himself or herself in such situations should not be conditioned by government-mandated time delays and taxes.  It is already lawful to open carry a firearm in the state of Idaho without government-mandated permitting and taxes.  Idahoans should not be penalized for the method they feel most comfortable defending themselves. 

Unfortunately, out-of-state billionaire and former New York City mayor, Michael Bloomberg, has once-again launched a misinformation campaign aimed at undermining the rights of law-abiding Idahoans.  Bloomberg-funded gun control groups are misrepresenting facts and statistics in an attempt to persuade your elected officials to oppose SB 1389. 

It is imperative that you contact your state Representative to set the record straight on permitless/constitutional carry.  Here are the facts on SB 1389:

  • SB 1389 will NOT allow violent criminals and state or federally prohibited persons to lawfully carry concealed weapons in Idaho;
  • Statistics indicate that SB 1389 will NOT lead to an increase in firearm accidents and misuse; and
  • SB 1389 will NOT eliminate Idaho’s current concealed weapon licensing system, nor will it jeopardize the benefits of obtaining a concealed weapon license.

With the end of the 2016 session drawing near, time is crucial!

Don't let an out-of-state billionaire push his New York City style gun-control on law-abiding gun owners in Idaho!  Please click the “Take Action” button above to contact members of the House State Affairs Committee in SUPPORT of SB 1389!
