ID – GUN RIGHTS – Debate stirs over new bill that would allow weapons on public properties

Representative Christy Zito is introducing another gun bill. Zito recently passed a gun bill earlier this month that would allow visitors to Idaho to carry a concealed handgun within city limits. The new gun bill would allow Idahoans to take guns into all publicly owned properties, including ones leased by a private entity. It would apply to places like the Ford Idaho Center, which is owned by the City of Nampa, but leased by a private entity. City leaders in both Nampa and Sandpoint say that while they support Second Amendment rights, they’re worried this bill will end up costing them financially. “Many promoters require that guns not be allowed at their events because guns and alcohol don’t mix,” Amy Bowman, Communications Director for the City of Nampa said. “The promoters don’t want to take the risk with that.” If over half of the acts at the Ford Idaho Center were to pull out, the city could lose up to a quarter of a million dollars. Shelby Rognstad, Mayor of Sandpoint, says that the bill would not just affect individual cities, but the state as a whole.  [full article]
