Idaho wants to allow 18+ to conceal carry in cities

The Idaho state House has voted along party lines to lower the legal age to 18 to carry a concealed handgun without a permit in Idaho cities.

In 2016, Idaho passed a constitutional carry bill that allows someone 18 or older to, without a permit, conceal-carry firearms anywhere in the state.

That came with an exception that 18- to 20-year-olds could not carry a concealed handgun within city limits.

The Idaho Statesman reports under the proposed law, that exception would go away.
