Idaho Eases Carry Restrictions For Military Members

posted on April 7, 2017

Idaho Gov. Butch Otter has signed legislation that would ease restrictions for out-of-state military personnel wishing to carry a concealed handgun for self-defense.

HB 93, which passed the state House of Representatives 65-2 and state Senate 35-0, was introduced by Republican state Rep. Don Cheatham and sponsored on the Senate floor by Republican state Sen. Marv Hagedorn. The measure amends current law by exempting active military members from the requirement that they be Idaho residents to carry a concealed handgun without a permit inside city limits.

According to NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action, HB 93 simply allows those who have been trained to defend our country to defend themselves in Idaho by exercising the same rights as residents.
