Idaho – -(Ammoland.com)- Just yesterday the Secret Gun Committee released their version of Constitutional Carry, Senate Bill 1378. Our biggest concern initially was that they would water it down with bad amendments.

What they have done is FAR WORSE than that. They have actually written a bill that will TAKE GUN RIGHTS AWAY from law abiding citizens!

You have not sent in over 11,000 signatures for Constitutional Carry and rallied at the Capitol with another 1,000 to be treated like this. You deserve and demand so much better but THEY AREN’T LISTENING TO YOU!

As it is currently written Senate Bill 1378 will give Constitutional Carry to Idaho residents ages 21 and over. BUT it will also change EXISTING LAW which will take away gun rights from millions of people.

CURRENTLY Idaho law allows non-residents to have Permitless Carry outside city limits as Idaho citizens currently enjoy. That provision also goes for adults between the ages of 18-20. Under Senate Bill 1378 all of those individuals would lose that right except for residents of Idaho who are 21 and over.

Idaho citizens deserve to know who is making this compromise and who is watering down this bill.

To start, every person on the Secret Gun Committee must be held accountable for these actions. The only problem is that we don’t know who all is on it.

We do know that Rep. Judy Boyle, Speaker Scott Bedke, and Senator Bart Davis are on the Secret Gun Committee.

SO WHAT DO YOU NEED TO DO?

You need to contact Senator Curt KcKenzie IMMEDIATELY and tell him that you will NOT stand for taking people’s gun rights away!!! He is the Chairman of the committee introducing Senate Bill 1378. The power is his to strip the restriction language from the bill.

Tell him simply, “Senator McKenzie, as a law abiding gun owner I do not support the taking away of gun rights from law abiding citizens. That is what Senate Bill 1378 will do. I want to see Permitless Carry for all law abiding gun owners of adult age, residents and non-residents alike. I want a Constitutional Carry bill that is not watered down!”

His contact information is: 208-332-1329 and his email is [email protected]

After you have done this you must call your own Representatives and Senator TODAY and TOMORROW and make sure they take action on your behalf.

Tell them simple, “As your constituent I am asking you to tell Senator McKenzie to remove portions of Senate Bill 1378 which will strip gun rights away from law abiding citizens. I will not vote for any legislator who votes for a bill which denies someone their God given right to self-defense.”

  • If you do not know who your legislator is you can look them up by you address here: http://www.idahovotes.gov/AbsenteeBallot/Default.aspx
  • Then you can look up their emails and phone numbers here: http://legislature.idaho.gov/sessioninfo/2016/Directory/Leg_Directory.pdf

These action items need to be done right now so get those emails and phone calls going!

We will not compromise with your gun rights and neither should your legislators!

Sincerely,

Greg Pruett
President, ISAA

I think I would stop spending money on guns and ammo as the way things are looking they ar just going to confiscate them and all that money will have been for nothing. Not enough people supporting the Constitution anymore and all these orchestrated shootings are making things look really bad by design. I have been buying crossbows instead.

So sad to see this happening. Makes me physically ill to see our country converting to socialism.

I know Speaker Becks personally and he is shun advocate, don’t infer that he is against gun owners.

They probably did this because CWLs aren’t generally issued to anyone under 21, and a FFL may not sell a handgun to anyone under 21. HOWEVER, the minimum age for attaining a pistol via private transfer is 18.

A reasonable compromise would be:
1. You may constitutionally carry outside city limits if you are at least 18.
2. You may constitutionally carry inside city limits if you are at least 21.

Like I’ve been saying, stop asking for permission to exercise constitutional rights.

They are breaking the law right in front of you and thumbing their noses at you in the process. I fear if they take away guns criminal types will realize how much more efficient bombs are. Can be remotely detonated no background check needed and can be made very simply in home. Can take out a very large group of people in the blink of an eye and less chance of being caught. If I were the criminal type it would for sure be my main go to.

What can you expect from the state whose names destroyed any chance of a Miss Ebonics pageant?

Look folks you HAVE to get control of your state legislature before they screw you out of the right to have more than 3 days of food in your homes. Otherwise you are domestic terrorist hoarders who are evil for thinking of a future in which criminal government takes over completely.

reminds me a lot of Colonial era Massachussetts, where having enough food in the larder to last until next harvest, when there would be more food to put by… was groinds for the Redcoat Goon Squads to take it.. “Military stores” they would cry, and even take the stack of spare “trenchers” (spare wooden plates) and blankets. Writs of Assistance , and General Warrants” a “license” for gummint to take whatever they wanted whenever and wherever they found it. No recourse. Make a fuss? You can go “talk to the King”…… in a kangaroo court “trial” in England, can’t bring… Read more »

We are receiving emails from the NRA supporting senate bill 1378, therefore they must be involved somehow with the secret gun committee. HB422 was introduced earlier, but the secret gun committee must have not allowed it to go before a hearing. I thought “we the people” not we the government!!! 10,000 signatures and 1,000 people at Boise supporting….NOT SUPPORTING 1378!!!! The Idaho 2nd Alliance is doing a great job!!!! AND has made some head way on No GUN signs around the area. I am sure the NRA tries to do a good job, and according to the ISSA they have… Read more »

We are a constitutional republic not a democracy. That’s what the media wants people to think. What you need in Idaho is a gun owners lobby day at the capital building with as many gun owners you can muster and peaceably meet with your legislators and ask for their support for your cause. Do it respectfully because you will get more bee’s with honey than you will with vinegar. We had to organize here in Illinois to get concealed carry here. For years we had to meet at the capital and lobby the legislators and we finally got it even… Read more »

Keep asking for permission to exercise a RIGHT and this is what you get – More “Laws” don’t make you free. “Constitutional Carry” is nothing but a oxymoron and is still a permission slip from a corporation. They use the words to make you think they give a sh1t about your rights – and most keep falling for it.

Stop being Sheeple – stop Asking for Permission.

One would think any type of secret committee and or meetings would be highly illegal with any government in this country.

T – Too f-ing dumb to own a gun. The main number with area code is right there before the name list. Too lame to pay attention? You have a computer but are too lazy or stupid to look it up yourself.

100% thoughtful response. That character’s reply was unnecessary and divisive. I don’t engage that sort in order to avoid more of their insecurities but am glad to see your response. Thank you.

WHY so quick to slam and belittle someone? Aren’t we ALL in this same boat together> I want to be able to carry in Idaho when I am ther,e too.. We out of state folks don’t know their area codes. Valid question, insulting response. Come ON, man….. have a care…..
