House Bill 589 was listed today on Otter’s website among legislation that had been signed into law. The governor added Idaho to the list of states that have adopted what has become known as “Firearm Freedom Acts.”
The movement began in Montana, where a court case was filed seeking affirmation that the state – and not bureaucrats in the nation’s capital – has the right to manage in-state issues and actions.
Idaho’s legislation cites the Second, Ninth and 10th Amendments as justification for its exemption, as well as the Constitution’s Commerce Clause.
