Idaho: Stand With Us in Our Fight for Freedom!

Just over a year into Joe Biden’s four-year war against gun owners and the Second Amendment, the fight to secure our freedoms has turned from an aerial bombardment into trench warfare.

The depraved legislation that we saw filed every other day in Congress has tapered off, as gun owners sent a message to the United States Senate that passing bills like H.R. 121, S. 746, and others like it would lead to their obliteration in November.

And while that’s a success for gun owners to be sure, in many ways, the threats that we are facing right now in Congress are more dangerous and more insidious than the bills above because these threats have bipartisan support and could pass the Senate!


Take the Violence Against Women Act (S.3623), for example.

This bill initiates a criminal investigation every time someone fails a NICS check (even though they are almost always false positives) and temporarily federalizes local cops and prosecutors so they can prosecute violations of this bill in federal court.

If passed, S. 3623 will unleash federally funded havoc on gun owners. Despite that, this bill has the tacit support of the NRA and has been cosponsored by almost a dozen Republicans in the Senate and may be voted on very soon!

The Idaho Second Amendment Alliance has been fighting against this legislation since last year, doing everything we can to flood Senators’ Crapo and Risch with calls, emails, and petitions in opposition to it — and we’re not letting up!

This is just one of the compromised bills that we’re dealing with in Congress right now — there are at least four others.

So if you’re not yet a member of the Idaho Second Amendment Alliance, I hope you know how important it is that you get involved in this fight!


Of course, we are also working to expand Idaho’s Stand-Your-Ground law with legislation sponsored by Senator Christy Zito.

Currently, Idaho’s self-defense laws put the burden on gun owners like you and me to prove that our actions following a self-defense shooting were reasonable.

The problem with this is that it inverts the idea of ‘innocent until proven guilty.’ That’s why sixteen states have expanded Stand-Your-Ground law to give gun owners a presumption of innocence unless the facts say otherwise.

Once passed, ISAA’s legislation would do the same thing for gun owners (and everyone else) here in Idaho. If someone used unreasonable force, they should be arrested and prosecuted, of course. But the days of a gun owner being arrested ‘just because’ need to come to an immediate end.

Our legislation would also provide gun owners with a badly needed enactment clause that allows you to assert your immunity in a pre-trial hearing! Otherwise, you can only use it on appeal, and your life is ruined!

But as you can imagine, given the number of RINOs in Boise, passing this bill is going to be a challenge and we are going to need every gun owner in Idaho to help us win this fight!


Of course, the Idaho Second Amendment Alliance is also gearing up for what will be an explosive 2022 midterm election cycle thanks to Joe Biden’s complete incompetence, which is sending his party’s poll numbers to levels that we haven’t seen in decades!

Frankly, other than fighting to pass pro-gun bills or defeat gun control bills during session, there is nothing more important for a gun rights organization to do than expose gun-grabbers at election time. 

ISAA revels in this task and over the years our radio, TV, and digital ads — combined with our direct mail, slicks and ground game programs — have been devastatingly effective and paved the way for our legislative success!

The May primaries and the fall midterms present us with a chance to send a MASSIVE MESSAGE that Idaho stands for freedom and the Second Amendment, and that ANYONE who votes against that will pay the price.

But we aren’t funded by an out-of-state billionaire. Everything we do is because of the members of the Idaho Second Amendment Alliance who so generously give us the resources we need to FIGHT for them!


As you can see, ISAA is fighting non-stop at the federal, state, and local level to defend the Second Amendment, and we are gearing up for an all-out war later on in the year.

If you are not yet a member of the Idaho Second Amendment Alliance, I hope that you’ll join in this fight to help us safeguard our right to keep and bear arms for the next generation to enjoy.

If you are already a member, I can’t thank you enough for your generosity and I hope that you will consider a special donation to help the Idaho Second Amendment Alliance during this expensive legislative session. You can make your donation here.
