Idaho, Georgia Continue Growing Gun Rights

posted on July 2, 2015

Yesterday, three important new NRA-backed pro-Second Amendment laws went into effect—two in Idaho, and one in Georgia

Idaho’s concealed-carry statute has been amended nearly 20 times since it was enacted in 1990, resulting in a convoluted, difficult-to-understand law. HB301 offers relief by clarifying certain language, providing guidance for concealed carry outside city limits, and reworking burdensome paragraphs of text into list format. As a bonus, HB301 also lowers CWL fees to $20 plus the cost of administering licenses.

HB16, which creates an Idaho Friends of NRA license plate, will allow Idahoans to display their NRA affiliation on their vehicles while supporting programs they care about. All proceeds will be used to further Idaho FONRA’s mission.

Georgia’s HB492 improves upon last year’s pro-gun reforms by clarifying who can carry concealed in government buildings, expanding the Georgia Weapons License (GWL) renewal window, and prohibiting issuing authorities from requiring fingerprints from GWL holders, regardless of county.
