So here's the proposed bill in question:

Under House Bill 620-A, no city, county, or other political subdivision in Idaho, will be allowed to make any rules preventing someone from carrying a knife on them, or create a tax for selling or purchasing the weapon.


Now, some may feel that it's good to be able to carry a knife anywhere on your person, while others may strongly disagree. We get that.

The Proposed Knife Bill Could Affect Idaho Concert & Music Venues

However, a weird sticking point to this bill would be concert and music venues. House Rep. Kenny Wroten had this to say about the proposed knife ruling:

Whether it’s Boise or Pocatello or wherever you have these venues," Wroten said. "This could be a real economic impact if they are forced to allow weapons into a facility when the entertainers have that in their contract and just will avoid us.


Imagine finding out your favorite artist cancelled their Idaho date, because their tour has a "no knives allowed in the venue" policy. No matter how you feel about the bill, that would just plain suck.
