I am very proud to be an Idahoan!  Idaho has passed a Senate bill, S1332, with total support of both the Idaho Senate and the House (Zero opposing votes, talk about unity!) and the Idaho Governor Butch Otter has signed it into law stating that future federal gun laws are nullified and prohibiting state enforcement of any future federal act relating to personal firearms, ammunition, or firearm accessories. The bill S1332 was introduced on February 10, 2014 and was signed into law on March 19, 2014.  See for yourself how fast this new law went thru the Idaho legislature: http://legislature.idaho.gov/legislation/2014/S1332.htm

 

The Federal lawmakers should take notice and follow Idaho’s fine example of working together for the protection of the constitution and the American people. How often do they agree 100% on a bill?  Now if the Federal legislature could only be united with a solid purpose like the Idaho legislature has then some things could get accomplished.

 

Idaho has joined an elite class of states which support the anti-commandeering doctrine which dates back to 1842. http://tenthamendmentcenter.com/2013/12/28/states-dont-have-to-comply-the-anti-comandeering-doctrine/#.Uy7g-53nbmI  The other two states as brave as Idaho are Kansas and Alaska.

 

I challenge the other states to follow Idaho’s fine example of supporting the constitution.

 

Idaho has also made it legal to carry guns onto campus.  Governor Butch Otter signed into law on March 12, 2014 a law which allows retired law enforcement and concealed-carry permit holders to bring concealed weapons into classrooms and anywhere else on campus except dormitories and stadiums.  This law goes into effect come July. http://www.idahostatejournal.com/members/guns-on-campus-now-law-otter-signs-controversial-firearms-bill/article_1f2e1c6c-ab49-11e3-90ea-0019bb2963f4.html
