As the country stays widely divided on the 2nd Amendment, one state has taken action to strengthen the constitutional right to bear arms.
Idaho has become the 8th state in the union where carrying a concealed firearm will no longer require a permit or expensive training. The new law goes into effect on Friday, much to the dismay of liberal democrats who are still foolishly attempting to outlaw firearms all together.
“Starting Friday, Idaho residents, age 21 and older, will legally be allowed to carry a concealed firearm within city limits regardless of whether or not they have a permit or have received training.
“Residents will be permitted to carry ‘any deadly weapon carried on or about the person in a manner not discernible by ordinary observation,’ and that includes ‘any dirk, dirk knife, bowie knife, [or] dagger’ in addition to firearms.
“Idaho is the eighth state to employ a ‘permitless carry’ gun law.
“Idaho Gov. C.L. ‘Butch’ Otter signed the Senate bill months ago, despite having apprehensions, which he expressed In a letter to President Obama.
“‘While S1389 is consistent with the U.S. Constitution, Idaho values, and our commitment to upholding our constitutional protections from government overreach, I am concerned about its lack of any provision for education and training of individuals who choose to exercise the right to concealed carry,’ Otter wrote.”
Cheers to Idaho, who is actually working to preserve and fortify that most important of constitutional rights of the American people.
