SB 1401 Moves to the House Floor - Please Contact Your State Representative, Today!

Last week, Senate Bill 1401 passed the Senate with a unanimous 34-0 vote. Thanks to your recent calls, this important legislation passed out of the House Transportation and Defense Committee yesterday, March 14. SB 1401 is now headed to the House Floor.

Sponsored by State Representative Bill Sali (R-21) and State Senator Gerry Sweet (R-20), SB 1401 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.

Please contact your State Representative today and ask him or her to support SB 1401 when it comes before them on the House Floor.
