Preemption

Only 1 More Anti-Gun Ban...

It wasn’t long ago that every public bus system in the State of Idaho had a ban on self-defense weapons. You would think that these types of laws wouldn’t exist in one of the most gun friendly states in the country but they do. And without your help, we couldn’t fight back against them. You can help keep these battles going — and we’ll tell you how in just a

Idaho Bus Bans Being Defeated!

I can’t believe what I am seeing right now. It was just a few weeks ago that citizens from several different cities told us about gun bans on Idaho buses in the Treasure Valley, Pocatello, and other cities. (This sign, from a Valley Ride Transit bus, has since been removed.) Several of those bans have been defeated! The battles aren’t over yet though. We need your help — more on

New Plymouth Idaho Bans Guns In City Limits!

I expect to see gun bans in New York and California, but right here in Idaho? Well, that’s what is happening in New Plymouth! We need your help to get this gun ban overturned — more on that below. In 2014, when the Idaho Second Amendment Alliance started the “Preemption Project”, the ordinance in New Plymouth was one of the most egregious. So, we sent them a letter on November

Idaho Cities/Counties Violating State Gun Laws!

I can’t believe what I am seeing. Idaho is not a state where you would expect cities to agree with Michael Bloomberg and violate state gun laws. But that is exactly what is happening! We must stand up to these municipalities and demand compliance with the law and we’ll tell you how you can help in just a minute. But first, let me give you a little background to it

Mt. Home Removes "No Guns" From Legacy Park Sign!

While cities like Buhl fight and claw against necessary changes to their codes, other cities like Mt. Home work quickly to comply with state law. When the ISAA recently held a “Castle Doctrine” rally at Legacy Park in Mt. Home, we noticed that the sign at the park prohibited firearms. Such a prohibition violates Idaho’s preemption statute. The ISAA sent the city of Mt. Home a letter notifying them of

ISAA Helps 2 Counties Update Firearm's Ordinances!

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

ISAA Calls for Open Hearing on House Bill 422 (Constitutional Carry)!

The Idaho Second Amendment Alliance is calling for an open hearing on House Bill 422. The bill is the closest version of Permitless Carry that has been proposed but the ISAA would like to see one small adjustment made to it. The bill would increase the age limit from 18 to 21 years old. The ISAA opposes any increase in restrictions on law abiding citizens above what is currently in

Chariman Loertscher Refuses to Hear Pro-Gun Bill Again!

The Idaho Second Amendment Alliance on Monday (Feb. 8th) turned in another pro-gun bill designed to strengthen Idaho’s Preemption statute. It was turned into the House and submitted to the House State Affairs Committee where gun bills are usually routed. The bill is designed to help protect Idaho’s gun owners from municipalities and state agencies who are seeking to undermine your 2nd Amendment rights. There should be no opposition to

5 Cities Update Ordinances, 1 Refuses!!!

The Idaho Second Amendment Alliance’s Preemption Project is a major work in progress. Governments are slow to make adjustments to their existing ordinances and even changing signs can sometimes take months. Every few months the ISAA reaches out to cities that have not yet completed their changes to request an update. The following 5 cities have changed ordinances over the last 2 months so that their ordinances are no longer

Immediate Action Needed By Canyon County Residents!!!

SEE ACTION ITEM BELOW MESSAGE!!! The Idaho Second Amendment Alliance has been involved in a project we call the Preemption Project. The preemption statute in the State of Idaho prevents cities and counties from enacting ordinances or posting signage which in anyway regulates the possession of firearms. In May of 2015 several Canyon County residents inquired about a sign posted at the Canyon County DMV which says, “Please Leave Weapons
