BOISE, Idaho (AP) - Visitors to Idaho 18 and over who can legally possess firearms will be allowed to carry a concealed handgun without a permit or training within city limits under legislation that headed to the Senate on Thursday.

The House voted 56-14 to approve the measure.

Backers say the measure clears up confusion when someone travels from a rural area to a city with a concealed firearm. Concealed carry is allowed in rural areas.

Opponents say it's a bad idea to allow teenagers with no training to carry concealed handguns in cities.
