Boise, ID –-(AmmoLand.com)- The Idaho Firearms Freedom Act has been introduced as H0589 by Rep. Dick Harwood.

If passed, this bill would create a confrontation at the federal level by making it legal to possess a firearm in Idaho regardless of federal regulations PROVIDED the firearm’s use AND manufacture meet certain requirements, including being manufactured in Idaho, with products produced in Idaho and stamped “Made in Idaho.”

This makes 25 states with FFA bills introduced or enacted. We're now at 50% of states that are involved with the FFA movement to roll back Washington's power over states.

Excerpt from the bill:

Relating to firearms manufactured in Idaho; to provide a short title; to provide legislative intent; amending chapter 33, title 18, Idaho code, by the addition of a new section 183315a, Idaho code, to provide prohibitions on regulation of certain firearms, firearm accessories or ammunition by the federal government, to provide exceptions, to provide requirements for marketing of firearms in Idaho, to provide applicability and to provide duties of the constitutional defense council; and providing severability.

Be it enacted by the legislature of the state of Idaho: Section 1.

Short title. This act may be cited as the “Idaho firearms freedom act.” Section 2. Legislative intent. The legislature declares that the authority for this act is the following:

The tenth amendment to the united states constitution guarantees to the states and their people all powers not granted to the federal government elsewhere in the constitution and reserves to the state and people of Idaho certain powers as they were understood at the time that Idaho was admitted to statehood in 1890. The guaranty of those powers is a matter of contract between the state and people of Idaho and the united states as of the time that the compact with the united states was agreed upon and adopted by Idaho and the united states in 1890.

The ninth amendment to the united states constitution guarantees to the people rights not granted in the constitution and reserves to the people of Idaho certain rights as they were understood at the time that Idaho was admitted to statehood in 1890. The guaranty of those rights is a matter of contract between the state and people of Idaho and the united states as of the time that the compact with the united states was agreed upon and adopted by Idaho and the united states in 1890.

The regulation of intrastate commerce is vested in the states under the ninth and tenth amendments to the united states constitution, particularly if not expressly preempted by federal law. Congress has not expressly preempted state regulation of intrastate commerce pertaining to the manufacture on an intrastate basis of firearms, firearms accessories, and ammunition.

The second amendment to the united states constitution reserves to the people the right to keep and bear arms as that right was understood at the time that Idaho was admitted to statehood in 1890, and the guaranty of the right is a matter of contract between the state and people of Idaho and the united states as of the time that the compact with the united states was agreed upon and adopted by idaho and the united states in 1890.

Section 11, Article I, of the Constitution of the State of Idaho clearly secures to Idaho citizens, and prohibits government interference with, the right of individual Idaho citizens to keep and bear arms. This constitutional protection in the Idaho Constitution, which was approved by Congress and the people of Idaho, and the right exists as it was understood at the time that the compact with the United States was agreed upon and adopted by Idaho and the United States in 1890.

In 2009, the Idaho Legislature adopted House Joint Memorial No. which stated findings of the Legislature claiming sovereignty under the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States over all powers not otherwise enumerated and granted to the federal government by the Constitution.

In enacting this law, the Idaho legislators are declaring their intention of Idaho becoming the freest state in the Union.
