Idaho: Permitless Carry Bill Delivered to Governor Otter

This afternoon, Governor C.L. “Butch” Otter (R) received Senate Bill 1389, the NRA-endorsed permitless carry bill, for his consideration and signature.  SB 1389 passed the Idaho Senate with a 27-8 vote and the Idaho House of Representatives with a 54-15 vote.  Governor Otter will have 5 days to act on SB 1389 if the Legislature remains in session through Saturday.  If the Legislature adjourns sine die before the 5-day period expires, Governor Otter will have an additional 10 days to act on SB 1389.

If Governor Otter signs SB 1389, or allows it to become law, Idaho will become the eighth state with permitless/constitutional carry, following West Virginia whose permitless/constitutional carry law will go into effect this June.  Please contact Governor Otter and politely urge him to sign SB 1389 into law.  Please click the “Take Action” button below to contact Governor Otter! 

SB 1389 will positively affect law-abiding gun owners in the following ways:

  • SB 1389 ensures that the existing and long-standing concealed weapon license (CWL) exemption applicable “outside the limits or confines of any city” only protects the rights of law-abiding individuals.
  • SB 1389 exempts law-abiding Idahoans, who are twenty-one years of age or older, from having to obtain a CWL in order to carry a concealed handgun for self-defense within city limits.
  • SB 1389 provides a mechanism for well-trained, law-abiding individuals who are eighteen years of age or older to obtain a CWL.

SB 1389 recognizes a law-abiding adult’s unconditional Right to Keep and Bear Arms for self-defense in the manner he or she chooses.  Self-defense situations are difficult, if not impossible, to anticipate.  Accordingly, a law-abiding adult’s right to defend themselves in such situations should not be conditioned by government-mandated time delays and taxes.

Once again, please click the “Take Action” button above to contact Governor Otter and politely urge him to sign SB 1389 into law!
