With only a few weeks remaining before the proposed adjournment of the 2017 Legislative Session, there are several bills affecting your Second Amendment rights and hunting heritage that are being considered by the Idaho Legislature.
House Bill 93, proposed by state Representative Don Cheatham (R-3B), would exempt active military members from the requirement that they be Idaho residents in order to carry a concealed handgun without a permit inside city limits. HB 93 passed the House State Affairs Committee on Thursday and will now move to a full vote of the House.
House Bill 240, proposed by state Representative Ronald Nate (R-34A), would encourage school districts to offer an elective course in firearms safety education that is developed and taught by the Idaho Department of Fish and Game, a law enforcement agency, or a firearms association. This bill has not been scheduled for a hearing at this time.
