[Ed. – That’ll make your Easter weekend.]
Idaho Governor Butch Otter signed into law the state’s permitless carry law on Friday afternoon.
Permitless carry has been in the making in Idaho for nearly five years. SB138 will take effect July 1, 2016.
Though there were a plethora of amendments that were sought to be put into the bill, which would have watered down the bill, the people of Idaho were on their toes and fought against them.
Seeing that there were veto proof majorities in the House and Senate, Governor Otter signed the bill into law. Many thought he would wait and veto the bill after the adjournment of the legislature in order to keep from being overridden.
