True Constitutional Carry
Means No Permit Required
Idaho: What a blessing to live in a state that honors the Constitution of the United States and the spirit of our Founding Fathers. Idaho citizens, likely more than any other state, take our Second Amendment rights seriously and ardently work to defend, maintain and improve Second Amendment rights within our border. I am proud to live here and so proud of the gun owners in our state for being politically active and taking a stand whenever and wherever to ensure our great state will maintain that leadership role in defending the Constitution.
Gun owners and supporters of the constitution regularly make their voices heard, being active in the political process, contacting their representatives, visiting their capital, writing letters and sending written petitions. This is truly how representative government is supposed to work, this is a republic at its finest driving solutions from the bottom up.
There has been a lot of recent talk about “Red Flag” laws in our state and our nation. While the vast majority of us seek to protect those perceived as most vulnerable using common sense, some misguided individuals driven by emotions seek to attempt to circumvent the Constitution and provide some perceived security at the expense of much freedom.
As a nation, we must be very cautious to not let those qualities overshadow the guarantees of freedom afforded us by our Creator. Americans are to be commended for the value we place on individual freedom. Defending and preserving our basic freedoms is the ultimate form of compassion.
This legislative session I will represent gun owners by introducing a bill to expand our constitutional carry rights. Currently you have to be a resident of the state of Idaho or a current member of the armed forces to carry concealed without a permit. If you are a non- resident, you must possess a concealed carry permit issued by your state of residence and it must have reciprocity with Idaho. It is our goal with this proposed legislation to remove the confusion of who needs to be permitted and make our state even more in compliance with the Constitution.
The proposed legislation makes it legal for any resident of the United States, 18 and older, who are law-abiding and legal to possess a gun, to legally carry concealed anywhere in the Great State of Idaho!
Below is an illustration of the current law and the proposed legislation. Thank you again for working to keep our state a leader in this and many other issues. It is a privilege to serve the citizens.
