06 Legislative Statutes: Idaho Code Ann.

 

 Idaho Statutes: Overview

The Idaho Statutes consists of laws that govern aspects of day-to-day life in Idaho. They detail what is legal and illegal, the court system, corporations, public land use, taxes, etc. Numerous sections in the Idaho Statutes deal with firearm rules, rights, and restrictions.

It is important to understand the numbering system used in Statutes, in order to navigate the system easily. The numbering patterns used are:

For sections: Statute § Title (dash) Chapter/Section number

For subsections: Statute § Title (dash) Chapter/Section number plus (Subsection number)

The symbol printed as [§] stands for “section number.” Two in a row [§§] stands for “multiple sections,” and will be followed by several Section numbers. A subsection is a specific point of the law. Here are some examples:

Idaho Code Ann. § 18-3302F = Idaho Statutes Code, Title 18 [Crimes and Punishments], Chapter 33 [Firearms, Explosives and Other Deadly Weapons], Section 18-3302F (Prohibition of possession of certain weapons by a minor).

Idaho Code Ann. § 18-3316(1) = Idaho Statutes CodeTitle 18 [Crimes and Punishments], Chapter 33 [Firearms, Explosives and Other Deadly Devices], Section 18-3316 [Unlawful Possession of a Firearm], Subsection (1) [(1) A person who previously has been convicted of a felony who purchases, owns, possesses, or has under his custody or control any firearm shall be guilty of a felony and shall be imprisoned in the state prison for a period of time not to exceed five (5) years and by a fine not to exceed five thousand dollars ($5,000).].

STATUTES RESEARCH. The “archive” system for Idaho Statutes works differently from the other official sources. Each individual Statute contains its “History” at the bottom of the page. This gives

The Statute section number, what year it was added, and a cross-reference to that year’s official record book’s chapter, section, and page number.

If there have been changes since then, these amendments are noted by “am.” (the abbreviation used for amended”), and a cross-reference to that year’s official record book’s chapter, section, and page number.

Example: Title 18: Crimes and Punishments. Chapter 33 – Firearms, Explosives and Other Deadly Weapons. 18-3317. Unlawful discharge of a firearm at a dwelling house, occupied building, vehicle or mobile home. The history line appears below (emphasis added):

History: [18-3317, added 1993, ch. 254, sec. 1, p. 880; am. 2007, ch. 42, sec. 1, p. 104.]

If a Title or Chapter has been Repealed, the name of the Title or Chapter still appears in the table of contents list, but is noted in square brackets as [REPEALED] and there is no active link to the text.

Example: The table of contents page for Title 18: Crimes and Punishments, shows Chapter 12 – Billiard, Pool and Card Rooms and Confectionaries is [REPEALED].

If any of the Statute names are not self-explanatory about the contents and its relationship to gun laws, or do not give enough detail, we as the producers of the IFR Resource Center may have added notes. (Such notes and summaries are for meant for clarification and convenience – they are not meant to be taken as fully accurate legally or to provide legal advice.) The notes often have added emphasis – especially boldface, and occasional underlining – to draw attention to what the producers see as the core content of that Statute.

NOTES: Statute numbers followed by an asterisk are lengthy or complex. The description that follows the link generally just summarizes that overall content, unless the specific wording is important. Then, a direct quote is given.

Other pages in the PPG Idaho Firearm Rights Center may deal with the Statute’s various regulations, exemptions, etc.

For a list of Frequently Asked Questions about Idaho State law on concealed weapons, see Office of the Attorney General, State of Idaho, page on Concealed Weapons License FAQs. Also, according to Idaho Code Ann. § 18-3302(17), the Attorney General is authorized to negotiate reciprocal agreements with other states to honor their licenses for concealed weapons. The Attorney General’s page on concealed weapons gives this information (as of March 18, 2013). (Emphasis added.)

Does Idaho have reciprocity agreements with any other states? If so what states?

Yes. Idaho has signed reciprocity agreements with Arkansas, Arizona, Colorado, Louisiana, Nebraska, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, Texas and Wyoming.

Also, Idaho recognizes valid concealed weapons licenses from all states. Idaho does not require specific reciprocity agreements with the other states.

Some states, such as those listed above, do require reciprocity agreements. Those states have specifically negotiated reciprocity agreements with Idaho.

If you are in doubt about a particular state’s reciprocity requirement, it is best to check with that state to determine its concealed weapons policy.
