Idaho Right to Carry Enhancement Bill Introduced in the State House

NRA-ILA

NRA – ILA

Charlotte, NC --(Ammoland.com)-  As the first month of the 2013 legislative session in Idaho comes to a close, an important Right to Carry reform bill has been introduced in the state House.

House Bill 192, by the House State Affairs Committee, would create an enhanced concealed carry license option for those applicants who choose to undergo additional training for more carry benefits.

This enhanced concealed carry license would help increase recognition of Idaho’s permit in other states, meaning permit holders might soon be able to carry a firearm for self-defense in more places when traveling outside of Idaho.  The enhanced permit would require several additional instruction requirements above the current permit training, including 8 hours of training by a certified instructor in the principles of self-defense, self-defense law, and the proper use of a defensive handgun.   HB 192’s enhanced concealed carry license would fulfill more of the reciprocity or recognition requirements set by permit-issuing authorities in states around the country, therefore improving the chances that Idaho’s permit holders will soon be able to carry a firearm for self-defense in more states.  Idaho’s current concealed carry license system would remain unchanged and residents would still have the option to apply for the regular carry license.

This bill has not yet been assigned to committee.  Your NRA-ILA will continue to update you as more details become available.
