APPEARS IN Legal & Legislation

Attack on Right-to-Carry Pending in Idaho!

Friday, February 20, 2009

Please Contact the Senate Health and Welfare Committee Today!

Senate Bill 1112, sponsored by State Senator Tim Corder (R-22), amends existing laws relating to daycare licenses in the state of Idaho and has a provision that infringes upon your Second Amendment Rights.  If you are a parent and you value your right to protect yourself and your children, we need your help to defeat this bill!

Originally, Senator Corder sought NRA’s advice on drafting legislation and was supplied with suitable language that would have protected the self-defense rights of law-abiding Idahoans.  Senator Corder changed our recommended language and now the bill inhibits your rights to possess a firearm.   

SB1112 would make it illegal for a mother picking up her child to be carrying a handgun in her vehicle if it were determined the parking lot were part of “the premises,” even if she had a permit to carry.  A spouse or family member of an in-home daycare facility who holds a Right-to-Carry permit would be prohibited from returning home during “normal operating hours” with their firearm.  This would even apply to citizens who carry as a work requirement, such as a security guard.

NRA strongly opposes SB1112 as the language stands now.  Please contact the members of the Senate Health and Welfare Committee TODAY and respectfully urge them to oppose SB1112.  Contact information can be found below.
