  Idaho Case Law:
- "The right to bear arms may not be denied by the
   legislature; it only has the power to 'regulate the
   exercise of this right'; that is, among other things, it
   may prohibit carrying concealed weapons, or prescribe the
   kind or character of arms that may or may not be kept,
   carried, or used, and various other things of a regulatory
   character." (1937)
- "The right to prohibit carrying of concealed weapons falls
   within the police power of a municipality and an ordinance
   enforcing same is constitutional." (1945)
- "Instruction [to jury] as to right to bear arms not in
   harmony with this section was properly refused." (1932)
