Beginning July 1, Idaho residents age 21 or older will be allowed to carry a concealed firearm without a permit inside city limits.
Gov. C.L. "Butch" Otter has signed Senate Bill 1389 into law. It will relax the state's gun policy and remove permitting requirements for concealed carry. Prior to SB 1389, residents age 18 or older could carry concealed firearms without a permit outside of city limits. Open carry is already legal within city limits.
Other states that already allow concealed carrying of guns without a permit include Alaska, Arizona, Kansas, Maine, Vermont, Wyoming and West Virginia.

Open carry lets anybody with ill intent know who to shoot first.
Whether it's a right or not, I've yet to understand why anybody does it.
many major cities in open carry states have statutes making it illegal to open carry within city limits...

I've seen pictures on Facebook where the guys has five or six guns on their right hip. An occasional multi-AR picture, here and there as well.
Yet, living in Washington State which has open carry without permit, I have seen in total 3 people taking advantage of that liberty. I don't live a cloistered life as a trucker and travel hither and yon throughout the state,
The first is one of my dispatchers. He's a old fart and weapons are part of his DNA. The second was a motor-cycle type, complete with all the tats and regalia. The piece likely color coordinated with the tats. The third was a street type with all the expanded ear-lopes and their uniform of the day. Probably no more that carrying was 'cool'.
Three! That's it. From Blaine to Vancouver, Spokane and the Tri-cities. Pretty much everything in between.....three...
Now I can't speak on Texas or other states, so I'm curious to what degree open carry has changed anything elsewhere in the country....if at all.
Much todo about nothing? Seems that way to me....
