Enhanced Concealed Weapons Permit Sails Through Idaho House

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — No House opposition emerged against a measure to help residents legally carry concealed weapons beyond Idaho’s borders. Representatives voted unanimously Thursday to send Meridian Republican Rep.

Joe Palmer’s “enhanced” concealed weapon permit plan to the Senate, where it’s also likely to encounter little or no resistance. Currently, it’s a pretty easy affair for Idaho gun owners to get a concealed-carry permit. But because of minimal training standards, only 11 states have reciprocity agreements with Idaho. Under Palmer’s bill, people seeking a concealed weapons permit could opt for more-rigorous training, including live-fire instruction.

Those who get these permits would likely see them recognized by about three dozen states, according to Palmer. Backers also hope these new permits convince Idaho school officials to allow their holders to be armed on school grounds.
