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 not fire your firearm in the county. Exceptions were made for officers acting in the line of duty but not for those who were acting in self-defense.
We are excited for these changes and glad to work with these counties in helping them get on the same page as Idaho law requires. Nearly all counties/cities that ISAA has worked with have been very helpful and cooperative.
There are a few towns left that the ISAA has reached out to whom we are still working with and you can find that on our Preemption Project page.
There are also a few towns such as Ketchum, Filer, Buhl, and Soda Springs where they are refusing to make changes to their ordinances. The ISAA is looking at extra measures to see if we can encourage them to do so.
Please stay tuned for details on new opportunities to help the ISAA with this important project.
