Idaho Enhanced Concealed Carry
Idaho has seen a massive rise in applications for the state's enhanced concealed carry permit.

Applications for Idaho’s enhanced concealed weapons permit have increased drastically over the last few months, according to KBOI2, circulating around gun legislation signed into place by Gov. C.L. “Butch” Otter.

The new law, signed into law by Otter on March 12, “allows retired law enforcement and concealed-carry permit holders bring guns into classrooms and anywhere else on campus — except dormitories and stadiums,” according to the Associated Press.

The enhanced concealed weapons permits have been available in Idaho since July 2013, but have seen a big bump in recent weeks, prompting instructors like Frank Huitema to open up more classes.

Huitema has taught concealed carry courses in Canyon County for 10 years, but he says with the large number of students in Boise now wanting an enhanced license, thanks to the guns on campus law, he’s about to open up classes in Ada County too.

Along with adhering to the recently passed guns on campus law, which goes into effect on July 1, 2014, the enhanced permit is recognized in more states.
