Idaho Permitless Carry Tramples Bloomberg On The Way To The Governor’s Desk

posted on March 22, 2016

Despite heavy spending by gun-ban billionaire Michael Bloomberg, on Friday the Idaho House overwhelmingly passed SB 1389, voting 54-15 to allow citizens over 21 to carry concealed without a permit. Those 18-21 may carry concealed with a permit at the discretion of the local county sheriff.

On March 13, Everytown for Gun Safety, Bloomberg’s New York-based gun-control advocacy group, ran a full-page ad in the Idaho Statesman, the state’s largest paper, urging legislators to reject the bill. Everytown also ran TV advertising spots opposing the measure. In addition, Everytown offshoot Moms Demand Action lobbied legislators heavily. 

The next morning, the Senate State Affairs committee approved the measure by a wide margin. The full Senate passed it 27-8 on Tuesday, and the House State Affairs committee approved it on Thursday. 

SB 1389 now goes to Gov. “Butch” Otter for his signature.
