Idaho Law Enforcement Could Be Punished for Upholding Federal Gun Laws

Benito Baeza

BOISE — Idaho law enforcement officers who help the federal government confiscate newly-banned firearms or ammunition would be guilty of a crime. That’s according to a measure introduced Monday in the House State Affairs Committee seeking to interfere with attempts by President Obama and Congress to ban semiautomatic weapons or other firearms following the massacre of Connecticut elementary school students.

Government employees in Idaho who help enforce new federal firearms restrictions or registration requirements would be guilty of a misdemeanor, punishable with jail and a $1,000 fine. Rep. Mark Patterson of Boise said he seeks to ensure Idaho residents’ “inalienable God-given rights to defend themselves” are forever protected.

A second bill, also introduced Monday, strengthens existing Idaho law that aims to ban federal regulation of Idaho-made weapons that never leave the state.
