“I can’t believe Loertscher would stoop so low!”
That was just one of the many angry comments we read recently about Chairman Loertscher’s recent decision to cancel the hearing for H.B. 444.
Now is the time for you to fight back, and we’ll tell you how in just a moment.
It was a deliberate attempt by Chairman Loertscher to silence a citizen who wanted to speak out about the injustice her husband faced under Idaho’s current Stand-Your-Ground law.
But don’t worry folks!
We sat down with LeAnn Anderson and gun owners at the capitol, and we heard some of her story on video.
It’s a lengthy video, but it destroys any narrative that Idaho’s current self-defense laws are sufficient.
Here is the short version of what happened:
>>> Two violent criminals attacked James Anderson in his driveway, and threatened to kill his wife and children and make him watch.
>>> They told James and LeAnn that they had been watching their home for months, stalking them.
>>> James was able to break free from the criminals and managed to get inside his home and retrieved his firearm.
>>> When James went outside to find his wife, whom he thought had followed him inside the house, one of the criminals was yelling obscenities and threats at her.
James got in between them, ordered him to leave and pointed his gun at him, finger on the trigger. The criminal didn’t comply.
>>> According to James, the other criminal tried to get in between himself and the other attacker. James was pointing the gun at the man when he says his arm was bumped, causing him to pull the trigger inadvertently.
The main attacker died on the scene.
But it wasn’t the other criminal who ended up going to jail that night.
The police handcuffed James, through him in the back of their squad car, and charged James with 1st degree premeditated murder!
A man who was defending himself and his family was the one going to jail?
And that’s just the tip of the insanity behind this case. The man James killed had several months prior beaten his significant other so bad that he sent her to an intensive care unit.
Again, make sure to watch the full video for details.
That is the story the establishment, and Chairman Loertscher in particular, are trying to squash.
If LeAnn and James’s story gets out to the media and to voters, it will expose Senate Bill 1313 (now headed to the House Floor) as the fraud “gun” bill that it is.
Chairman Loertscher did all he could to block yet another gun bill (H.B. 444) that is supported by the people of Idaho.
He has done this for years now, and it’s time to expose his record.
That’s why we need your help!
The primary election season is here, and it’s time to let voters know about Chairman Loertscher’s long record of blocking pro-gun bills.
First, please forward this email to anyone living in Bonneville County, Bear Lake County, Caribou County, Franklin County, and Teton County.
Second, we have surveyed Loertscher’s opponent in the race, Chad Christensen, and he has answered our survey with 100% pro-gun answers.
Please visit Chad’s website and tell him thank you for being willing to stand up for gun owners.
Time is quickly running out for us to inform Chairman Loertscher’s constituents exactly what he has been up to when it comes to your gun rights.
That’s why we need you to act right away!
