Thank You for Your Hard Work and Support!Yesterday, Governor C.L. “Butch” Otter (R) signed House Bill 194, the “Idaho Sport Shooting Immunities Act (IDSSIA),” into law.
Sponsored by State Representative Marc Gibbs (R-31), will HB194 protect existing shooting ranges and increase opportunities for recreational shooters and hunters to practice on safe and monitored ranges. Many shooting ranges require range officers to operate and most range officers are volunteers. Currently, in
Limiting the liability of shooting range operators, firearms instructors, and those involved in running matches and other events, will help save existing ranges from being forced to close and protect those involved with running ranges from frivolous lawsuits. HB194 ensures that a range officer will not be bankrupted by a frivolous suit simply for volunteering his valuable time.
Thank you to all of the NRA members who answered the call to act in support of HB194. Without you, this victory would not have been possible.
