Idaho House Votes To Allow Guns In Cars

From the _Idaho Statesman:
_

_Idaho residents love their cars and they love their guns. State representatives say the two shouldn't be separated, even when gun owners are on the job.
_

_The House voted 50-19 Monday to tell companies to let employees leave their guns in their cars parked in company lots.
_

_Rep. Jeff Thompson, R-Idaho Falls, said three companies - Cabela's Inc., Home Depot Inc., and Hewlett-Packard Co. - forbid this now. His bill encourages them to reconsider, by promising to shield them and other companies from civil liability in state court should such a weapon be used in a crime.
_

_"This affects hunters and more importantly, people who carry firearms for self-defense," Thompson said.
