Spokane: Armed bank robber shot by concealed carry customer and starting tomorrow concealed carry is legal in Idaho without a license...


Looking forward to tomorrow.

SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. (emphasis mine)
Deputies in Spokane Valley have responded to an attempted robbery at the Spokane Teachers Credit Union branch located in the 13200 block of E. 32nd Avenue.

About 1:40 pm Spokane County Sheriff's deputies responded to the credit union on a report of an attempted bank robbery. An initial report, which Deputy Mark Gregory stressed hadn't been confirmed, was that a customer inside the credit union was armed with a weapon and fired “a shot or shots” at the suspect.
“At this point the belief is the suspect was possibly hit in the arm and fled the bank on foot last seen heading north,”Gregory added. read the rest
Beginning Friday Idaho residents will be able to flex their Second Amendment rights and carry concealed firearms without a permit.

A new Idaho state law allows most gun owners over age 21 to be armed in public places as long as their pistol is hidden by clothing, purse or holster.

“There are some exceptions to that, obviously convicted felons, people who are drug users, there are a variety of people who cannot carry concealed weapons but for the average law abiding citizen, they'll be able to carry without a concealed weapons permit,” Post Falls Police Chief Scot Haug said.

Up until now, if you wanted the privilege of carrying a concealed firearm in Idaho, you had to apply for a special permit. You had to have your fingerprints taken and then be able to pass a state police background check that showed you had not been treated for mental illness or convicted of domestic violence. read the rest
