    Welcome to OCDO. Moved your post to the Idaho sub-forum as your question is state specific.

    Idaho is a "gold star" state.

    Welcome,

    1. Be aware of the laws in Idaho, suggest carrying an Idaho Tri-fold with you. It has all the laws and is great if questioned and or asked by a curious person.
    2. Be aware of your surroundings.
    3. Carry a recorder with you just in case; this is expecially important as a young OCer as someone may see your youth as a chance to challange you.
    4. Find another (seasoned) OCer in your area to OC with.

    Zrcogg,

    None of this is legal advice. Just my opinion/commentary.

    OC to one of the Idaho Falls City Council meetings (an older, experienced OC'er would bode well), requesting a hearing regarding an inquiry toward presenting they repeal duplicative and, technically, state and/or federal unconstitutional Idaho City Ordinances regarding Firearms.

    Idaho Falls Code (IFC) - CHAPTER 14 FIREARMS, EXPLOSIVES AND DEADLY WEAPONS

    Many of the subset code in Chapter 14 is duplicative of (Idaho Code 18-3302.

    Given that it is "duplicative," they are saying that, as a gov't entity, they are proclaiming the right to charge someone when can also be charged at the Idaho Code level. E.g., Can't be charged with the "same" violation twice, regardless if that "law" exists in 2 separate listings.

    Technically, the only law a city (such as Idaho Falls) can pass regarding firearms is that of regulating the discharge thereof.

    IFC 5-14-2 reads as follows:
    If any person, excepting officials of a county, officials of the State of Idaho, officials of the United States, peace officers, guards of any jail, court-appointed attendants, or any officer of any express company on duty, shall carry concealed upon or about his person, any dirk, dirk knife, bowie knife, dagger, sling shot, pistol, revolver, gun

    The authority of ICF to have the portion of this ordinance in bold above was REVOKED this last 2013 Idaho Legislative Session with HB 183 and became effective July 1, 2013. In short, a city can no longer regulate, prohibit, or punish for the carry of a concealed weapon of *any* kind. FYI ~ I wrote HB183. Of exceeding dismay, our Legislators won't acknowledge such.

    I proffer that representatives from Idaho Carry, Idaho Second Amendment Alliance, the likes, travel out and appear with you presenting any such request to ICF City Council to repeal their present non-compliant city ordinances.

    Technically, the only ordinance they should have on the "books" is ICF 15-14-11 (A) and (B). Subsection (C) implies that a citizen can not discharge a firearm in self-defense, of which Idaho Code states otherwise.

    Request of ICF City Council to adopt Caldwell, Idaho's "Firearm" code, of which I championed them to repeal their 50+ year old code and replace it with what they now have (they did this in July, 2012, five short days later after I noted their outdated code to them; man, I never saw a gov't entity move so fast!!!).

    Remember: Always Carry Safe to be Safe!
