    Bill to block police seizure of firearms in Idaho

    To the Idaho Governor for signature today is a bill written to prevent/block the seizure of firearms by police.

    BOISE -- A bill that seeks to pre-empt a hypothetical gun-seizing order from the federal government cleared its last hurdle when it won unanimous backing in the House Wednesday.

    Rep. Jason Monks, a Meridian Republican, says the measure will protect Second Amendment rights by punishing Idaho law enforcement officers who seize citizens' firearms. It's aimed at counteracting the chance President Barack Obama will try to restrict gun ownership, something Monks says is at odds with Idaho law. Idaho officials who order confiscation of firearms could face fines or misdemeanor charges under the measure. Officers wouldn't be barred from taking guns away from felons. The bill has already passed the Senate, where a similar measure died last year.

    It will now land on Gov. C.L." Butch" Otter's desk for signing.

    A pre-emptive strike.

    Hope it passes.

    This one is a lock for the Governor to sign. I suspect he will sign it as soon as it hits his desk in the next couple of days, especially since he signed the "Guns on Campus" bill today stating it was his Constitutional (State) responsibility to protect citizen's firearms rights.

    We really only have two choices for Governor in Idaho:

    We can pick the current one who strongly believes in the right to bear arms or this one, who also believes STRONGLY in the right to bear arms.

    I am hoping to go back to Idaho in the not to distant future, that's where I was a deputy many years ago and that's where my ashes will be spread by my son and daughter.

    There's nowhere quite like it, is there?

    It's a crying shame that any State even has to consider passing such a bill. That should tell everyone something about our Federal govt.

    The Fed would pass its law, then hold that "incorporation" invalidates the state law.

    I say good luck to 'em IF they "think" that will fly - Nothing in the COTUS would allow them to violate Enumerated Rights - and they know it ; and the "Feds" cannot run the USPS- cannot even set up a working website for "health care" so HOW will they run a "gun grab" without State/local help
