“Imagine the flood of emotions you’d feel hearing the words “GUILTY” ring out from a Judge’s lips.
You dared to use a firearm in self-defense against a violent criminal attacker who was attacking you and your family.
After hearing the verdict, the smarmy anti-gun prosecutor cuts you a glance, smiles and mouths, “Gotcha.”
Both of you knew you did nothing wrong. But he wants to appear “tough on gun crime.” He was able to convince the Jury you were a madman just itching for a fight.
And under current Idaho Law, there’s absolutely nothing you can do.
That’s why I’m counting on you to please sign your petition for the Idaho Legislature IMMEDIATELY.
As you’ll see, this petition urges your State Representative and State Senator to cosponsor and vote to pass the Idaho Stand-Your-Ground Bill.
In 2017, we made a major push for Castle Doctrine Reform.
That will continue to be a focus, but — with the recent passage of Stand-Your-Ground in both Iowa and Missouri as well as a number of other states — it’s time for Stand-Your-Ground in Idaho as well!
With the session rapidly approaching, my goal is to generate a flood of petitions to place on state legislators’ desks as soon as they go back in session.
If passed, the Idaho Stand-Your-Ground Bill would simply state that law-abiding Idaho gun owners can defend themselves against criminal attack without fear of being targeted by an anti-gun prosecutor.
1) Face no so-called “duty to retreat.”
Under Idaho law, this isn’t a requirement. However, a prosecutor is free to argue you could have avoided a dicey situation by retreating, and a jury could be persuaded to agree.
In a situation where your life is on the line, the LAST thing you want to be thinking about is what some anti-gun judge or prosecutor might say;
2) Would receive criminal immunity from anti-gun prosecutors.
In other words, no more anti-gun prosecutors trying to make an example of you — or taking a case to court to make a political statement;
3) Would receive civil immunity.
That means the money-grubbing family of some thug you had to defend yourself against can’t come after you in court and sue you for millions!
Without each piece of this three-legged stool — which Idahoans DO NOT currently enjoy — those who defend themselves are effectively sitting ducks.
So, every year — from Boise to Coeur d’Alene, and Mountain Home to Idaho Falls — law-abiding gun owners face the prospect of being prosecuted for simply defending themselves!
I’m sure the gun-grabbers think to themselves, “that serves you right!”
After all, whenever some criminal commits some horrific crime, don’t the gun-grabbers always rush to place blame — not on the criminals themselves — but on law-abiding gun owners?
So is it really any surprise Idaho law doesn’t explicitly protect gun owners — even when it’s your safety at stake?
I don’t know about you, but I believe the law should put the interests of law-abiding Idaho citizens ahead of common thugs and criminals.
So do a vast majority of Idahoans.
Despite this, gun-grabbers have so far succeeded in derailing passage of Stand-Your-Ground.
But with your help today, I believe those days are numbered.
If you and I can turn up the heat once again, I believe we can FORCE every member of the Idaho Legislature on record for or against Stand-Your-Ground as soon as they are back in session.
In fact, my hope is that when politicians return to Boise, they see petitions stacked a mile high all insisting on Stand-Your-Ground law being passed.
The good news is, just forcing a vote on Stand-Your-Ground legislation puts you and me in a win/win situation in 2018.
That’s because there’s no vote the gun-grabbers in BOTH parties fear more.
If you and I force public, roll-call votes on Stand-Your- Ground in both houses of the Idaho State Legislature, ALL the gun-grabbers in BOTH parties will finally be exposed.
Either you and I will get the votes we need to pass Stand- Your-Ground — or gun-grabbers will pay the price in the next election.
Second Amendment supporters will make sure of it.
But this effort cannot wait a moment longer.
That’s why I’m counting on your immediate action to make Stand-Your-Ground a reality.
The Idaho Second Amendment Alliance’s members and supporters have proven their effectiveness in recent years — including ensuring passage of Constitutional Carry in Idaho in 2016.
But it’s going to take resources I don’t currently have on hand to rally pro-gun Idahoans to our cause.
So, in addition to your signed petition, won’t you please agree to send your most generous contribution right away?
Your generous contribution today will help the Idaho Second Amendment Alliance turn up the heat on the State Legislature with a massive grassroots program, including:
>>> Generating 50,000 petitions from all over Idaho insisting the Legislature pass Stand-Your-Ground;
>>> Using email, social media and Internet ads to mobilize an additional 15,000 Idahoans from all over the state;
>>> Working the blogs and granting media interviews to explain exactly why Stand-Your-Ground would make Idaho freer and safer;
>>> Paying for hard-hitting radio, newspaper and even TV ads to ensure politicians are feeling the most heat right before they’re forced to vote.
This is the type of plan it will take to finally make Stand-Your-Ground a reality in Idaho.
And it’s the type of plan only the Idaho Second Amendment Alliance can put into action — and only with your help.
I know that’s a lot to ask for.
Every dollar will help me push forward for Stand-Your- Ground in Idaho.
So please sign your Stand-Your-Ground petition and make your most generous contribution of $500, $250, $100, $50 or $25 IMMEDIATELY!
Idaho Second Amendment Alliance
P.S. Without Stand-Your-Ground, many law-abiding Idaho gun owners are sitting ducks for prosecutors who are looking to nail gun owners to the wall.
A big reason is our lack of a Stand-Your-Ground Law.
If passed, Stand-Your-Ground would simply state that law abiding Idaho gun owners can defend themselves against criminal attack without fear of being targeted by some anti-gun prosecutor.
Then please support the mobilization of gun owners across Idaho with your most generous contribution of $500, $250, $100, $50 or $25 RIGHT AWAY!
