Support the Stand-Your-Ground Expansion Act!
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 Missouri prosecutor did to Mark and Patrick McCloskey; 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 my elected official, I am writing to insist that you cosponsor and vote for the Stand-Your-Ground Expansion Act, being brought forth by the Idaho Second Amendment Alliance next session. I’ll be watching this bill closely!
