    Do open carriers plan to make themselves known at the Tea Party in Boise on April 15th? I hope I'm not the only one there.

    I also had heard about this and was considering going. Is the Capitol steps considered part of the gun free zone? I know that the new state preemption law should forbid this, but a demonstration seems like a poor time to prove it.

    Does anyone know who is organizing the tea party in Boise? Is there a website or mailing list?

    i'm not a lawyer etc...

    but

    that executive order that banned carry of firearms in the "capitol mall" district has since expired and I can't find anything saying Gov. Otter renewed it. Do an EO search on the governor's page to see for yourself.

    thus carry should be legal.

    Wear shoe black and a ballcap so you don't get inputted into a facial scan computer.

    Thanks IdahoCorsair. After I posted I was able to find that also, but it is always nice to hear someone else came to the same conclusion.

    I plan to be there barring any extenuating circumstances.

    I was very pleased with the turnout at the party, but did not see anyone else open carrying. Of course, it was difficult to look through the crowd. I did have a very nice conversation with one of the participants, and I think he learned a lot about Idaho's gun laws. That alone was worth the time. How did the rest of you fair?
