BOISE -- A lawmaker aims to clear up confusion over where concealed weapon permit seekers can get a copy of their background checks.

Republican Rep. Christy Perry of Nampa says a constituent applied for and was granted a permit to carry a concealed weapon.

The person gave their fingerprints and was subject to a background check.

However, when he asked for a copy, Perry said he got mixed signals.

First, the county sheriff told him to go to the Idaho State Police.

Then, the Idaho State Police directed him to the county sheriff.

Perry's bill would make it clear that anybody wanting a copy of their background check following their permit application would be able to get it from the county sheriff.

The bill was introduced Tuesday in the House State Affairs Committee.
