Idaho Pro-Gun Bill Focuses On Military Members

A pro-carry measure that focuses on the rights of U.S. military members has passed the Idaho House of Representatives.

House Bill 93 passed the house by a 65-2 vote and has been referred to the Senate State Affairs Committee for consideration.

The measure, introduced by Republican state Rep. Don Cheatham, amends current law by exempting active military members from the requirement that they be Idaho residents in order to carry a concealed handgun without a permit inside city limits. 

In a nutshell, under HB 93, those who have been trained to defend our country would be allowed to defend themselves in Idaho by exercising the same rights as Idaho residents—and that’s a good thing.
