Early this year, Idaho lawmakers introduced the Second Amendment Preservation Act (HB219) in the House. It passed overwhelmingly with a vote of 55-13, but the measure stalled in the Senate in March.
This was not a loss. It was first step on the path to victory! What we need to push things further in Boise next session is a strong grassroots organization behind the bill well in advance.
In order to take this to the next level and get a victory, your action is needed right now. Starting today, and all the way through the rest of the year, local governments around the state need to be pressed to take action – passing legislation in support of the right to keep and bear arms and refusing to cooperate with the feds locally. And at the same time, calling on the state legislature to do the same. When the state is blanketed with local communities willing to nullify violations of the Second Amendment, the state legislature will be on notice. Do your job, or else.
It’s going to take work to ensure that this is how things play out. Here’s what you can start doing right now.
1. Contact your local legislators – County, City, Town - and urge them to introduce an ordinance in support of the Second Amendment.
