Idaho: Self-Defense Legislation Heads to the Governor

Today, March 13th, the Idaho state House of Representatives passed Senate Bill 1313 with a 57-12 vote.  SB 1313 will now head to Governor Butch Otter for his signature.  This important piece of legislation, which has the backing of law enforcement and prosecutors, will improve the ability of law-abiding citizens to defend themselves in Idaho, previously passed the state Senate with a 29-6 vote.  Please contact Governor Otter and politely urge him to sign SB 1313 into law.  Click the “Take Action” button below to contact Governor Otter. 

Senate Bill 1313, sponsored by Senator Todd Lakey (R-12), would consolidate and codify existing law to clearly protect the inherent right of a person to defend themselves.  This legislation clarifies that in the exercise of self-defense, a law-abiding citizen may stand their ground and protect themselves or their family anywhere they have a legal right to be.  SB 1313 also protects the right of a person to defend himself against intruders who enter the defender’s home or business unlawfully or by force, without the defender having to demonstrate that he reasonably feared that the intruder was about to cause death or great bodily harm.  The unlawful or forceful entry is enough to establish a legal presumption that the defender’s fear of serious injury was reasonable—and, therefore, that the defense against the criminal was reasonable as well.

Please contact Governor Otter and urge him to sign SB 1313 into law!  Please stay tuned to your email inbox and www.nraila.org for further updates on SB 1313 and other firearms-related bills in Idaho.
