Idaho Governor Otter Signs Permitless Carry Legislation

Sponsored by NRA-ILA

Another great victory for gun advocacy came when Idaho Governor Otter signed Senate Bill 1389, NRA sponsored legislation to allow permitless carrying.

On July 1st of this year, Idaho will officially become the eighth state to waive government mandated permitting and fees in recognizing a law abiding adult’s ability to posses a concealed handgun for self defense.

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.
