Idaho Emergency Powers Legislation to be Heard in House Committee! Please Contact Representatives!

Friday, March 10, 2006

Senate Bill 1401, sponsored by State Representative Bill Sali (R-21) and State Senator Gerry Sweet (R-20), is NRA-sponsored "Emergency Powers" legislation that will prevent government officials from imposing restrictions on the lawful possession, transfer, sale, transport, storage, display or use of firearms and ammunition during a state of emergency.  Most citizens are aware that some government officials were stripping law-abiding citizens of their firearms in New Orleans in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. This bill will ensure that such abuses will never occur in the State of Idaho.

Senate Bill 1401 could come up for a hearing in the House Transportation and Defense Committee anytime.

Please contact the members of the House Transportation and Defense Committee and urge them to vote in favor of Senate Bill 1401 when it comes before them!
