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.
