Allowing Idahoans to carry concealed weapons without a permit may satisfy the political ambitions of the fellow pushing that idea, Idaho Second Amendment Alliance President Greg Pruett. But what about the ordinary concealed weapon-carrying citizen? Pruett has been pushing to eliminate the permitting process that involves background checks and screening out those who have forfeited their rights to gun ownership - convicted felons, the mentally ill and people who have been dishonorably discharged from the armed services. The process also requires concealed weapon permit applicants to undergo some training. That's a far cry from an earlier era, when you had to persuade law enforcement to issue a concealed weapons permit. Today, if a sheriff wants to refuse to issue a permit, he needs to give cause. It's not enough for Pruett, who argues this is about the Second Amendment's guarantee to keep and bear arms/Marty Trillhaase, Lewiston Tribune. More here.
Question: I'd guess 8 out of 9 of our Kootenai County legislators would support constitutional carry? Do you think I'm right or wrong?
