A dispute that erupted last year when former Republican Rep. Mark Patterson was allowed to carry a concealed weapon even after his permit was revoked has lawmakers trying to change Idaho's guns laws.

The rule came under scrutiny when Patterson's concealed-carry permit was revoked in Ada County for not disclosing on his application he'd pleaded guilty to assault with intent to commit rape in 1974/Associated Press.

Question: Do you agree that elected officials should be required to get a concealed-carry permit, just like constituents?
