Default Constitutional Carry in Idaho

Here's an article from my local paper this morning about how the first year of permitless carry in Idaho has gone.
I thought others might find it interesting as well.
I wish they had chosen ANY other photo to go with their story... the picture of the gun loose in the purse is awful.

The Coeur d'Alene Press - Local News, One year later, no big deal

You have one too many "http:"s in the link.

Also, even removing the extra http: the link still doesn't work.

I finally found the article going directly to:

The Coeur d'Alene Press

You are right. That gun loose in the purse is a AD waiting to happen.

I also think that gun in the purse like that is totally just a prop in that photo because the photographer was on deadline and didn't have a better idea how to illustrate the story . Not that there aren't idiots around carrying guns like this.....

At least the Sig P238 in the purse does have the safety on .. but still not a
safe way for a woman to carry in a purse .. Pistol should be in a holster and secured !!

I live close to CDA and I have not seen a difference either. People just going about their business as usual. Though it is nice to know that if some crazy person decides to pull a gun out at the store there will most likely be several people ready to defend.
