Idaho: Full Senate to vote on youth having guns in cities with no permit required

The NRA wants youth of 18 carrying loaded assault weapons anywhere with no permit or training required. Currently, they can do this anywhere but a city. If the bill passes, handguns and assault weapons will be seen in Boise, not just for those over 21, but for some still in high school.

The Bill

👎 House Bill 206 would lower age for carrying guns in cities from 21 to 18.
