Passage of Senate Bill 1389—the so-called "concealed carry" measure—had Second Amendment rights activists cheering but, according to The Coeur d'Alene Press, it has some bartenders nervous.
The law, signed by Idaho Gov. C.L. "Butch" Otter on March 24, makes it legal for Idahoans over the age of 21 to carry concealed weapons without a permit inside city limits and for citizens 18 and older, to do so with the permission of the local county sheriff.
Idaho bartenders, meanwhile, wonder how they're going to adapt to the new law.
They'll get an education Monday, April 11-Tuesday, April 12, when the the Idaho State Liquor Division and the Idaho Licensed Beverage Association host their trade show at the Riverside Hotel in Garden City. There's where servers and owners will be able to get more than three hours of training on the new law, provided by Idaho State Police Alcohol Beverage Control officers.
The information session will also include training from the Boise Police Department on active-shooter situations.
The event is free for ILBA members and $25 for nonmembers. For more information on the trade show, click here.
