    BOISE -- The House voted 50-19 to tell Cabela's, Home Depot and Hewlett-Packard to let their employees leave guns in cars at work.
    Rep. Jeff Thompson, an Idaho Falls Republican, says all three now forbid this. His bill would shield companies with permissive policies from legal liability, should such a gun be used in a crime.
    Thompson says, "That goes directly to the 2nd Amendment: Every individual has the right to bear arms."
    Foes countered there have been no such lawsuits in Idaho so far, but fear this could actually create liability for businesses with policies forbidding guns in cars -- or even those without a specific policy.
    Rep. James Ruchti, a Pocatello Democrat, says "the courts could interpret this to mean, 'If you don't have a policy, then you've opened yourself up to liability.'"
    The Senate now weighs in.

    you posting this doesn't surprise me, seeing as how FL already permits it (by law)

    outside of OC, not many people know that FL leads the curve

    But they don't allow OC? :ugh: It's just nice to see something pro-gun in the news with all the anti-gun bullshit going around.

    I thought the supreme court already ruled that businesses can't prohibit employees from leaving their firearms in their vehicles. Hmph.
