Permitless Concealed Carry Begins in Idaho on July 1

If you live in Idaho, things are about to get a little better. In about two weeks, Idaho residents age 21 and older will be able to legally tote a concealed firearm without regulation. (Residents aged 18 to 20 will still be required to get training and apply for a concealed weapons license).

The new law (SB-1389) will go into effect on July 1, 2016, and it will help amend a discrepancy: No permit or license is required to carry openly in Idaho. It only makes sense that carrying concealed should be treated in the same way.

At any rate, things are about to get a little more free in one part of the USA.

Oh, and if you’re traveling in Idaho and you have a license or permit to carry concealed in another state, you’re good:

Idaho recognizes all other states validly issued and current concealed weapons licenses/permits. You must have your state concealed weapons license/permit on your person when carrying a concealed weapon in the state of Idaho.
