Idaho – -(AmmoLand.com)- The fight for gun rights in Sandpoint Idaho continues to heat up.

Over the weekend the Idaho Second Amendment Alliance obtained a letter that was sent to mayors all across the state of Idaho.

We shared this letter with Northwest Gun News. You can see the entirety of the letter and survey using the link here or in the image below.

In it, Mayor Shelby Rognstad of Sandpoint asks mayors to fill out a survey detailing what type of events they hold in their towns and how much revenue such events generate for their cities.

The letter tells mayors that Sandpoint might be financially harmed if they aren't allowed to disarm Idahoans at events held on taxpayer property.

Read the Gun Control Letter Sent to by Sandpoint Idaho's Mayor Shelby Rognstad

Under current Idaho law, cities and counties are prohibited from regulating the possession of firearms, including on public property. Exceptions exist of course for Federal buildings and schools.

The gun-grabbing mayor says that in order to have “public safety” the city needs to be able to disarm its citizens.

Not only does he want to be able to do so in Sandpoint, Rognstad is helping push legislation that would allow your city or county to also regulate the possession of firearms on public property for certain events.

The primary purpose for Mayor Rognstad's effort is to please musicians that want to play at the “Festival at Sandpoint” who require that concert-goers be disarmed.

His promotion of ‘gun-free' zones is something better suited for California, not Idaho.

We must do everything we can to stop Rognstad's efforts.

If you have not already done so, then please immediately send your legislators a pre-written email using our new Citizen Activist Tool here:
www.action.idahosaa.org/action/tell-your-legislators-to-oppose-sandpoint-mayors-gun-free-zone-proposal/

The legislative session will be over before you know it and we need gun owners mobilized to stop any gun control that is proposed in Idaho.

You are doing an amazing job already!

Thousands of emails have been sent by gun owners into the capitol.

Your activism is making a difference. We can't let Bloomberg's minions from Moms Demand Action derail your incredible efforts.

That's why I hope you have already told your legislators to oppose Mayor Rognstad and if you have, be sure to share the link so others can do it as well.

Be sure to also read the letter in the news article we posted above.

Finally, don't forget that this Wednesday we are going to be meeting at the capitol on the “Garden Level” to hold a pro-2nd Amendment rally and support legislative efforts to make Idaho the best pro-gun state in the country.

We'll meet at 9:00 a.m. on February 5th.

Whether you carry a firearm or not is up to you. You are allowed to carry in the capitol.

We only ask that you use standard firearm safety practices.

This is our time to stand up and fight back!

For Idaho,

Greg Pruett
President

If these kinds of politicians are willing to defy the 2A by taking your guns away, just imagine what they’ll do once they have them.

Communist leftists infiltrate and become the voice of reason. Isn’t that how they got elected?
Idaho like other conservative states are being systematically disarmed by these invaders who move to escape oppression only to bring it with them.

this is why running from your state is not the answer to anti-gun legislation. It is being pushed in all 50 states, and Bloomy’s pockets are deep. You MUST engage your legislators. You MUST campaign for the right people. You CAN even run for office.

@jukk0u – Amen.

If we surrender CA, NY and NJ – they would have the electoral votes to force unacceptable nationwide laws. Fleeing states increases risk of having to flee the nation – don’t know about any of you, but I have no where else to flee to.

Hmmm. Who are these “performers who prohibit firearms”? I think we should send them a message, too: Boycott their concerts!

When will some of these Politicians learn the difference between a Criminal and a law abiding Citizen. (Criminals Break the Law) That is what makes them a Criminal. Laws mean nothing to them. I say some, because the other Politicians want us defenseless so they can invoke their Tyrannical Agendas. That said It’s God’s Laws that need only be enforced Period.

Oh for cryin’ out loud, are you so stupid to think they don’t know the difference? Politicians DON’T CARE! All they want is control and that can’t happen until they disarm the law abiding citizens.

This all seems rather stupid when you take into Consideration that over 95 % of the mass shootings occurs in gun free zones. All that you can take away from this letter is that the mayor is trying to say he put Revenue above his citizens lives.

how aobut he simply tell performers wo damand Certified Defenseless Victim Zones when they perform to go pound sand. And NOT the sand at Sand Point….. put the loss back on the performers alledgedly demanding their terms and compromising the safety of their audience. As proven many times anyone who REALLY wants to gt a gun into one of these places can, or will (cut the fence round the country fairgrounds, stash your weapon, go in past the checkpoints and get it). Or, just stay outside the fences of the venue ahd shoot over the fence,….. or from a high… Read more »

It’s all about revenue. Revenue is far more important than rights to a politician.

Looks like another California import to Idaho working to screw up a beautiful state and trying to turn it into the dump they turned California into and left. He’s just like the ones that ruined Coeur d’ alene and Pend oreille. They even changed the name of Pend oreille to Ponderay because they (California imports) couldn’t pronounce it or spell it correctly. They need the wall around California more than they need it on the Mexican border.

Appears that big money and commieforniacrats are in fact a training ground for socialistic communist legislators . From education facilities thru government facilities then “deployed” out into other states to subvert their governments as well as national offices .

You know he’s an asshole Dem when it looks like he has a set of balls on his chin… Issue a recall and send his anti gun libturd ass packing. Black Rifle Coffee needs to open a shop near to his coffee house for MEN to visit.. The picture makes him look like he would be the wannabe “50’s street thug” catcher in a male-male marriage.

The inept ability at dealing with criminals shines bright indeed. Law abiding citizens look like easy targets to pursuit in their attempts to cover up their worthlessness. It’s the Criminals….Not the Law Abiding….Serve not Rule….

It’s crazy that they have no problem letting out criminals who have committed multiple crimes and dozens of arrests. Then these same criminals go and commit more crime with illegal guns, and we (good armed citizens) have to pay for it! Look at the Washington state shooting….both criminals (one with 21 arrests the other with 44) were let out of prison and then commit a killing and wounding others. Yet WE are the ones they are targeting! THE JUDGES KEEP LETTING THESE FREAKS WALK!!!

Stripeseven: They are targeting all private citizens not yet subjugated into the prohibited underclass denied the the right to arms. Freed criminals have already been so subjugated. The have no further need to target them.

Gun-Free zones are Killing Zones. Laws like this only make it safer for mass shooters.

That turd, if he were a real American and not a commie (one guess at his political affiliation, anyone?)- he’d be telling those musical anti-freedom pieces of sh!t to go elsewhere and book someone better in their place (which can’t be hard with all the musical talent in the USA).

These anti-freedom POSturds need to shut the hell up & sit down, because if they keep coming at the rest of us with their tyranny, it will soon enough be open season on tyrants and their quislings with no bag limit.

@PO I saw a video of these two freaks in court in Vegas. They were sitting together and laughing and smiling about their notoriety. They will be sent here to WA to receive their fair trial, Hopefully we will convict them of murder, but maybe not because of the liberal court system. If they are convicted they will probably spend twenty years to life in the pen. They might get out early for good behavior. My question is this: How come Gov. Inslee refuses to execute anybody in WA state? It’s time to punish people for their crimes including murder,… Read more »

It’s the Hegelian Dialectic at work for all to see. Problem, reaction, solution. Or to be more precise; thesis, antithesis, synthesis.
Let’s recap: Thesis – criminals commit multiple heinous crimes misusing firearms and get caught.
Antithesis – Judge notes their misuse of firearms and lets them go, knowing they will commit more heinous crimes misusing firearms.
Synthesis – Legislators note that criminals misusing guns aren’t being locked up, so they pass laws against owning guns, even though it’s the criminal not the gun that’s the problem. Judges meanwhile continue to let criminals walk and law-abiding people are disarmed.

Wash, rinse, repeat.
