Are Guns Going to Be Targeted by Ballot Initiatives in Idaho?

Idaho’s liberals have launched a new ballot initiative, taking aim at Idaho’s elections.

Democrats have been foiled for years by Idaho’s conservative base at the polls and at the capitol. That’s why they want to change Idaho’s elections.

More on that in just a moment.

First, we need to discuss how the dangerous ballot initiative process will likely target the 2nd Amendment very soon.

Gun owners in Washington, Oregon, and California have faced an onslaught of anti-2nd Amendment ballot initiatives for years.

Red Flag laws made it into law in Washington state through the ballot initiative process. And it’s only gotten worse since then.

Liberals often can’t get their ideas through the state legislature, so they turn to the ballot initiative process to make it happen.

Once the initiatives are launched, these anti-gun liberals simply lie to the public about what the initiatives do.

They don’t care about the truth.

For instance, when liberals want to pass Universal Gun Registration, they pitch it as “Universal Background Checks.”



Rather than telling people what they really want to do with “Universal Background Checks,” liberals tell citizens that they want to keep guns out of the hands of criminals. The reality is that they want to keep guns out of the hands of anyone who wants or needs them, especially pro-2nd Amendment individuals.

Ballot initiatives are a favored tool in places like Idaho because liberals have no way of getting their ideas even introduced most of the time.

Democrats are left with two options in Idaho: Run for office as a Republican and/or push liberal ballot initiatives.

Sadly, Idaho’s RINO population is not seeing what is happening to our state. Too many Republicans are asleep at the wheel, thinking these changes can’t happen in Idaho.

Well, hopefully this new ballot initiative will wake them up to what is really going on.

You can read all about the new ballot initiative on the Keep Idaho Free website.

The short version of the story is liberals are going to try and force the Idaho Republican Party to have an “Open” primary. Additionally, they want to force Idaho to have “Ranked Choice Voting.”

What does an “Open Primary” mean?

Simply put, anyone in the state can vote in the Idaho Republican Primary, including Democrats.

Democrats in Idaho know their anti-gun views aren’t welcome in our state. So, they often run and vote as Republicans to keep Idaho from passing more conservative legislation.

Their next best option is the ballot initiative process, which they have been using for years now to push big government programs.

How long will it be before they start to target the 2nd Amendment?

The only way for us to fight back against this madness is by strengthening our gun laws first and foremost.

Additionally, we must ensure that once those pro-2nd Amendment laws are passed, they are protected.

Now is the time to fight back and protect Idaho from liberal lunacy.

We can’t do that without the help of tens of thousands of gun owners across Idaho. You make the ISAA what it is, and we are only as strong as the supporters who keep us going.

I am so proud and honored to stand with you during these insane times. With a vegetable occupying the White House, and a RINO occupying the Idaho governor’s office, we need Idaho citizens to stand together.
