    Received a phone call 3/27 AM, from someone who could barely speak English, demanding that I contact my legislators to urge them to vote for H0301 (2015).

    The caller claimed that H0301 (2015) closes a loophole that allows criminals to carry concealed weapons.

    He picked the wrong person. I told him flatly that he was either misinformed or lying, most likely the latter.

    H0301 (2015) just continues existing legislation, which requires licensing for concealed carry, with some minor tweaks. BTW, NRA-ILA believes these tweaks to be manna from Heaven.

    H0301 (2015) is in the Idaho Senate State Affairs committee as of today, 3/27.

    Sen. McKenzie, cmckenzie@senate.idaho.gov, is committee chairman. For those in Idaho, write to him with the message that licensing of possession of firearms is unconstitutional according to the following stipulation found in Article II, Section 11:

    No law shall impose licensure, registration or special taxation on the ownership or possession of firearms or ammunition.

    Be nice. Sen. McKenzie appears to be on our side.

    Everytown is a nasty virus. It invades anyone without a functioning brain.

    Idaho will be one of the last states standing when it comes to the gun control fight. Idaho gets it, and won't tolerate what it's blue neighbors have. They try what they did here in Washington and Moms will get escorted across the state line by a armed angry mob

    I am from Twin Falls and have lived in Boise twice in the last 30 years Meridian once.

    It's been 20 years since I lived in the Boise area. I would be sad if the change has been that dramatic

    I would like to be optimistic, but if the Idaho Legislature ignores Idaho's Constitution in one aspect, what prevents it from ignoring any other aspect?

    Unfortunately, Idaho is not some sort of 2nd Amendment nirvana. The Legislature is lopsidedly Republican. With friends like these, who needs enemies?

    My tactical retreat to Idaho will be my last stand. I'll be dead before Idaho gets as bad as Eugene or Portland I'm thinking.
