The Idaho Second Amendment Alliance has been working with Councilman Ryan Johnson of Lewiston to remove the illegal ban of firearms on their city buses.
Councilman Johnson has been going back and forth with the city attorney who is attempting to do everything she can to keep the ban in place.
Now, we need your help to tell the Mayor and City Council it is time to step up and end this ban for good.
Please act immediately!
Chairman of the Board
Idaho Second Amendment Alliance
The current language reads as follows:
“Carrying, exhibiting, displaying, or drawing any firearm, dagger, sword, knife or other cutting or stabbing instrument, club, or any other weapon, including a toy weapon, apparently capable of suggesting or producing bodily harm, under any circumstances is not allowed on any bus or Transit Property.”
The language will be changed to:
“Unless otherwise provided by law, passengers are prohibited from carrying, displaying, or using any weapon that suggests or is capable of producing bodily harm. Such weapons include, but are not limited to, knives, daggers, swords, and toy weapons.”
By adding “unless otherwise provided by law,” this statement excludes the regulation of firearms without saying so outright. Please let me, Suzanne, or Laura know if you have additional questions or concerns.
