Idaho Preemption Bill Scheduled for Hearing Tomorrow!

Tuesday, February 12, 2008

Please Attend the Hearing or Contact the Senate State Affairs Committee Immediately!
 

The Senate State Affairs Committee has scheduled Senate Bill 1381 for a hearing tomorrow, Wednesday, February 13 at 8:00 a.m. on the second floor of the temporary capitol building (directly across the street to the East from the original building).  SB1381 will make numerous improvements to Idaho’s preemption statutes by preventing municipalities from enacting local ordinances regulating firearms and ammunition.

Under current preemption statutes, uniform firearm regulations only exist within the realm of ownership, possession, and transportation.  SB1381 will codify into law that no county, city, or local government body can regulate the sale, acquisition, transfer, carry, and storage of firearms, adding them to the existing points of preemption.  The bill will also make clear that ammunition and firearm components are only to be regulated by the State of Idaho, not by local entities.

Uniform laws regulating firearms and ammunition are necessary to protect the constitutional rights of Idaho’s law-abiding gun owners and to prevent anti-gun municipalities from passing their own laws, which may conflict with state law.  Please attend the hearing or contact the members of the Senate State Affairs Committee today by phone at (
208) 332-1000 or toll-free at (800) 626-0471 and respectfully urge them to support SB1381.
