Rep. Richard Wills, a Republican from District 23 (Glenns Ferry, Mt. Home, Homedale, Marsing, Hammett, King Hill, and Atlanta) has VOTED AGAINST a gun rights bill in the 2016 Idaho Legislative Session!
Rep. Rich Wills is in his 7th term in office and is facing a primary challenge on May 17th, 2016 in the Statewide Primary election.
Gun Owners across the State of Idaho have overwhelmingly supported Constitutional Carry and the Idaho legislature took up the measure this year in the form of Senate Bill 1389.
Constitutional Carry simply means that a law abiding citizen who is legally able to own and purchase a firearm can also carry that firearm concealed without getting the government’s permission to defend their own life.
Constitutional Carry is already legal outside of city limits and has been for nearly 100 years. Senate Bill 1389 simply allows Idaho residents to enjoy Constitutional Carry inside city limits as they have been able to do outside city limits.
Rep. Wills recently told the Idaho Reporter his EXCUSE for voting against your gun rights when he said, “I also am concerned about people now using a gun on [sic] any dispute, just because they have a disagreement with another,” Wills wrote. “There has been a cultural change in society today and there is very little concern about human life, compared to the past.”
Wills also expressed concern the bill would make stopping mass shootings more difficult for police officers and could lead to accidental killings.
“I hope we have not opened the door to people coming to the rescue, now that they are armed and the officer who arrives, not knowing the bad guy from the good guy,” Wills explained.
Fear mongering and phony excuses usually come from anti-2nd Amendment advocates. Is Rep. Wills simply re-stating what Michael Bloomberg has been pushing in Idaho?
It has been well noted that in recent days Bloomberg has been dropping radio ads, newspaper ads, and robocalling people in an attempt to kill SB 1389, Constitutional Carry in Idaho.
Does Rep. Wills agree with Michael Bloomberg? On this gun rights issue, Rep. Wills seems to have sided with Michael Bloomberg.
