Idaho: Senate Passes Concealed Carry Amendment

Yesterday, March 20, the Idaho Senate passed House Bill 93 by a 35-0 vote.  Introduced by state Representative Don Cheatham (R-3B) and sponsored on the floor by state Senator Marv Hagedorn (R-14), HB 93 would amend current law by exempting 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 would simply allow those who have been trained to defend our country to defend themselves in Idaho by exercising the same rights as residents. 

HB 93 will now go to Governor Butch Otter (R) for his signature.  Please contact Governor Otter and urge him to sign HB 93 into law!  Also, stay tuned to your email inbox and www.nraila.org for further updates on HB 93 and other firearms-related bills in Idaho.
