Breaking! Contact Lewiston City Council Now!

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. She is deliberately trying to skirt Idaho law!   You can read one of her emails below and how

Idaho Bus Bans Being Defeated!

I can’t believe what I am seeing right now. It was just a few weeks ago that citizens from several different cities told us about gun bans on Idaho buses in the Treasure Valley, Pocatello, and other cities.

Power County Idaho Continues Illegal Gun Ban!

It wasn’t just New Plymouth with illegal gun bans. Power County, Idaho also has a ban! We need your help once again — more on that below.

Idaho Cities/Counties Violating State Gun Laws!

I can’t believe what I am seeing. Idaho is not a state where you would expect cities to agree with Michael Bloomberg and violate state gun laws. But that is exactly what is happening! We must stand up to these municipalities and demand compliance with the law and we’ll tell you how you can help in just a minute. But first, let me give you a little background to it

We have an important update for Buhl residents or those who have been following the situation in Buhl, Idaho regarding their firearms ordinance. The City Council President, Mr. Higbee, has informed the Idaho Second Amendment Alliance that their ordinance has been updated.

Mt. Home Removes "No Guns" From Legacy Park Sign!

While cities like Buhl fight and claw against necessary changes to their codes, other cities like Mt. Home work quickly to comply with state law. When the ISAA recently held a “Castle Doctrine” rally at Legacy Park in Mt. Home, we noticed that the sign at the park prohibited firearms. Such a prohibition violates Idaho’s preemption statute. The ISAA sent the city of Mt. Home a letter notifying them of

ISAA Helps 2 Counties Update Firearm's Ordinances!

For several years now the ISAA has been working on a “Preemption Project” to bring all city and county codes into compliance with Idaho law and to help remove any signs which are in violation as well. In total, 45 changes have been made in 42 cities/counties! 2 of those changes just occurred recently in Washington County and Cassia County. Each of these counties had ordinances that said you could
