Update on Pending Pro-Gun Bills in Idaho

Tuesday, March 31, 2009

Please Continue Checking Your Email and www.NRAILA.org for Updates

A number of NRA-backed bills are currently at different stages of the legislative process in Boise. 

On Monday, March 30, House Bill 65A passed the State Senate by a 31-0 vote (with one excused vote).  It now heads to the desk of Governor C.L. “Butch” Otter (R) for his consideration.  HB65A would enable law-abiding Idahoans to purchase firearms in non-contiguous states.  It would also permit non-residents to purchase long guns in Idaho.  As the outdated law currently stands, residents of Idaho can only purchase firearms from immediately surrounding states.  With the passage of HB65, a resident of Idaho would now be allowed to purchase a firearm in most of the 49 other states.  This bill affects only rifles and shotguns, as federal law prohibits interstate handgun sales. 

House Bill 137 would allow state parks the ability to regulate discharge outside of normal, lawful usage; i.e. target practice in a safe area, hunting, sporting clays, or self-defense.  The purpose was to help control what would be considered unlawful discharge in populated areas.  It also includes that a subsection permits concealed carry in state parks.  This bill was signed into law by the Governor on Friday, March 25.

House Bill 194, the “Idaho Sport Shooting Immunities Act (IDSSIA),” encourages people to volunteer at shooting ranges as range officers by providing them with liability protection.  The bill was amended to comply with workers compensation issues to protect law enforcement while they are involved in shooting activities.  HB194 passed out of the Senate State Affairs Committee last week and will likely be amended once more before heading to the Senate floor.

On Tuesday, March 24, House Bill 229 passed the Idaho State House by a 61-9 vote.  This NRA-supported measure makes numerous improvements to the current emergency powers statute that was signed into law in 2006.  It has moved to the Senate and has been assigned to the Senate State Affairs Committee.  HB229 is a NRA-supported reform to legislation passed in 2006.  Specifically, this prevents government officials from imposing additional restrictions on the lawful possession, transfer, sale, transport, storage, display, or use of firearms and ammunition during a state of emergency.    

At this time, no action is needed on behalf of HB65A, HB194, or HB229.  Please continue to check your email and www.NRAILA.org for updates.
