Stop Blocking SB-1004; Enhanced Stand-Your-Ground Law!
Whereas: Idaho’s Stand-Your-Ground law doesn’t provide immunity from prosecution, which means a prosecutor can charge me with a crime for defending myself against a criminal, just like a Wisconsin prosecutor did to Kyle Rittenhouse; and
Whereas: Idaho’s Stand-Your-Ground law doesn’t provide an enactment clause, which means the only time I could claim it as a defense is AFTER I’ve been convicted in court during the appeals process; and
Whereas: Idaho’s Stand-Your-Ground law still requires me to cover all of my legal fees, even in clear cut cases where a liberal prosecutor filed charges against me just to advance their own political agenda; and
Whereas: True Stand-Your-Ground law should protect gun owners from criminals and anti-gun prosecutors alike.
Therefore: As a gun owner here in Idaho, I insist you use your position as the Chairman of the State Affairs Committee to advance this bill through your committee. If you continue to block it, you and your caucus will be held accountable at election time.
Once you have signed your petition, please chip in whatever amount you can afford to help us mobilize TENS OF THOUSANDS of gun owners in every corner of this state to fight alongside of us and oppose this massive attack on our right to keep and bear arms!
