Idaho House Passes Concealed Knives Bill

BOISE -- Butchers, this bill is for you.

Legislation that would carve out an exemption in Idaho's concealed weapons law on knives has passed the House.

The measure approved unanimously Thursday allows Idahoans to carry concealed knives with blades four inches or shorter without a permit. Longer knives used to prepare food, legal tasers and pepper spray would also be permitted under the proposal.
